BTN – Zombie Apocalypse

Facts.

Understandings.

Questions.

This BTN was about a school that turned the subject Science into a zombie apocalypse game for their students.

The aim was to find a kidnapped scientist who might have the cure to a zombie virus outbreak. Teachers set up loads of stuff for their students to use as evidence such as liquids, hands, fingers, bite marks, etc. Not only was it a fun science activity but it forced the students to work together to find clues and do experiments. It also had certain aspects of science hidden inside of it.

One thing I thought that was it’s a good idea to disguise science into something fun, but something too fun or extreme could confuse kids about what their really doing and learning.

Two questions were, how long did it take the teachers to set up the subject? Also, what did the students end up doing the best on with science?
