There's nothing worse than being stuck in an impending apocalypse without some basic knowledge, skills and crucial essentials on hand... and an impending zombie attack is no laughing matter! Through a series of games, lively "undead" question-and-solution stories and dramatic play scenarios (and using "zombies" as a jumping off point for exploring real information)... students in this crazy fun survival class will be challenged to think about all aspects of a zombie pandemic. What about health needs, containment, food storage and cure? In order to be extra prepared and gain some serious zombie knowledge, students will learn all about the physiology of a zombie (and previous human state), as well as how to create an all-hazards emergency kit (coincidentally suitable for earthquakes and other natural disasters) and perform basic first aid skills (as long as it's not a zombie bite). What wilderness and survival skills, tools and techniques will be needed for escaping an undead onslaught? Students will practice how to take care of basic living needs, create a safe shelter, and preserve and store food. And what about "catching" the virus? Students will also explore how a virus actually affects the body, how a virus spreads, the speed and distance travelled, prevention tips and how different living areas would be affected. Need to know the quickest direction to run? In addition, students will practice how to read a map to determine best exit routes and safe assembling areas, as well as locate the closest hospital, gas station, grocery stores, bank, and other buildings of importance. All this and more... and of course, this class wouldn't be complete without some special effects zombie makeup play at the end of the day.
