Dewey Decimal Game (with Zombies!)

$12.00

In this Dewey Decimal System game, students select from 25 zombie apocalypse scenarios and use symbols from different Dewey sections to survive the wilderness, disease, hunger, and brain-thirsty zombies! It’s great as an introduction to Dewey or to review the classifications.

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.
 
The Zombie Dice Game includes:
  • 33-slide PowerPoint game
  • complete directions
  • Dewey Categories sheet (needed to play game)
  • Tool Categories sheet (needed to play game)
  • list of specific Dewey numbers for items listed on the Categories sheets
 
About the PowerPoint Game:
  • students select from 25 scenarios in five categories
  • each scenario includes a full-color photo
  • “spacer” slide gives students an opportunity to share their solutions
 
About the Categories sheets:
  • Each of the “Tool” categories represents a “hundreds section” in Dewey Decimal classification. For example, “Tool Category #5” contains items that symbolize topics in the 500s section of the library. “Tool Category #11” contains symbols from the 100s section (since students cannot roll a 1 with two dice).
  • Use the Tool Categories sheet if you have not yet taught Dewey.
  • Use the Dewey Categories sheet if you recently taught Dewey.
