Well, my students are prepared.
We started off by explaining how to tell who is a zombie, then we got straight to the point – zombies like brains. Changpyeong High School students have great brains. Ergo, ZOMBIE ATTACK.
(note this is not my lesson, just someone else’s lesson that I adapted)
I split my students into groups and gave each group a folder (or some groups shared) with 5 weapons or materials, and they had to come up with pros, cons, and how to use each item. Each folder had different items. Then they had to switch groups and give me back the folders and from memory in their new groups decide which 4 of the 15 items they would keep and how they would use them. Anyone who survived got candy, anyone who died became zombie candy. To push creativity I told the classes that the most creative group got two pieces of candy.
Baseball Bat: A regular, wooden baseball bat.
Chainsaw: This chainsaw comes in either “scary-looking, manly” or “pink Gucci” style. You get 6 Liters of gasoline with the chainsaw.
Flamethrower: This flamethrower can shoot fire 8 meters. You get 6 Liters of gasoline with the flamethrower.
Blankets: Enough blankets for everyone in your group. It’s November – you might get cold.
Matches: These waterproof matches will still work if you get them wet!
Rope: 110 meters of very strong rope.
Shotgun: This shotgun comes with a case of shotgun shells (bullets). 1 case has 20 boxes of shells inside. 1 box has 25 shells inside.
Spam: This is a LIFETIME supply of spam. Yum.
Kimchi: It’s really spicy, and good for your health!
Wood and a Nail Gun: This is an unlimited supply of wood planks, a nail gun, and an unlimited supply of nails.
The kids who got the typical weapons (like “shotgun” “axe” etc) had a much easier time coming up with pros, but my favorites are the atypical ones:
Pro: Prevent cancer
Con: Very Spicy
We can use this to rub into Zombie’s eye
Pro: We can eat it while we are hungry.
Con: It’s not a good weapon, and we need rice to eat it.
Pro: We can eat when we are hungry.
Con: It’s hard to cut zombie’s head.

We can use this to paralyze zombie’s sight.
Pro: We can make zombie embarrassed
Con: No die

We can use it to hinder zombie’s walking.
Pro: Save the energy

Con: Next time we die
We can use this to cover dead friends.
Next post – a compilation of my favorite survival plans. As this is just the first day of MANY (at least 5) days of Halloween, consider this and the following post a work in progress.
