DEWEY DECIMAL ACTIVITY #1: AFTER THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: A DEWEY DECIMAL STORY
This story is designed to be read to middle and high school library classes. It imagines that two years ago, the world was overrun by flesh-eating zombies! The main character (you!) has managed to survive two years, but alone and without any creature comforts. The story walks students though the ten main Dewey classifications as a way to get the world “back to normal” after the end of the zombie apocalypse.
In the Zombie Dice Game, students select from 25 zombie apocalypse scenarios and use symbols from Dewey sections to survive the wilderness, disease, hunger, and brain-thirsty zombies! It’s a fun, zombie-fied way to introduce or review Dewey!
This role-playing game can be used before or after teaching the Dewey Decimal System. It does not teach Dewey itself and should not be used in isolation without teaching Dewey in a recent or upcoming lesson. During the game, students will apply Dewey groupings to various survival scenarios.
