This is a highly entertaining Christmas lesson full of fun activities. Complete and ready to use. There’s nothing like zombies to capture the imagination of students! The lesson includes a fully explained activity where students build and fire simple catapults made from lolly (popsicle) sticks. This is done in the classroom (no need to go outside).

Christmas is in jeopardy! The learners have to try to save Christmas by defeating the zombie horde and finding a cure to turn the zombies back into humans. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, any of us can give this fun and imaginative lesson. How can we stop the zombie horde? How do we cure the zombies turning them back into people? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible depending on your needs. There are add and delete activities so the lesson can easily last anywhere between 0.5 hours and 1.5 hours depending on what you want. This lesson gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them happy, focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. There’s nothing like zombies to capture the imagination of students! It's a great lesson that teachers of any subject can use with all ages from 6 to 16. It won't go out of date (like a quiz might) so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price !
