These original lessons build upon each other and have an accompanying plot line where the world is fighting a zombie apocalypse and the best and the brightest young people are being trained as medical students- with a specialty in neuroscience- with the hopes that they will be able to provide a cure to this terrible epidemic and save humanity. Use them together or as stand-alone lessons. A basic understanding of biology is the only pre-requisite for these cross-curricular lessons!

I am doing this unit with my high school continuation school students. In the first lesson, I printed the neuron pages smaller so each student made their own neuron. In lesson 2, the Brain Mythology pdf is not available for download. I found it here: https://ca.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/01c14c6b-2864-4de3-892b-49c4dafef3f9/the-zombie-autopsies-the-neuroanatomy-of-a-zombie/. This is a fun unit and students seem to enjoy it.
