Zombies are in high demand these days. Be it in TV, movies, video games or zombie walks people seem to love zombies. Wouldn't it be great to bring some of that interest to school.
The zombie apocalypse would be a great interdisciplinary theme. So many subject areas could be easily included in the fun.
Math and science can be used to model population and crop growth in isolated communities, study the spread of disease.
Tech can be included by looking at importance of skilled trades in a small community, developing power generation solutions, and constructing shelter.
Geography can explore the best locations to start communities, understanding the differences in the environment throughout the planet.
History can look at various situations from the past that may connect with the present situations.
The political and business structures of starting a community can be explored and built.
Even school announcements can be thought of as important radio broadcasts.
While I have broken them up somewhat, most activities are really cross- discipline.
