What makes Zombie Guacamole unique?
One of the unique features of Zombie Guacamole is that students will investigate a strange phenomenon: a bowl of guacamole that was found at the bottom of a 25-year-old landfill, still fresh! Through this investigation, students will build an evidence-based explanation for how this could have happened.
Students work in groups to manipulate conditions for decomposition in an experiment called the “Race to Decomposition.” Throughout this experience, students gain a deeper understanding of the complex processes that occur in ecosystems and how they are all interconnected.
By combining scientific understanding, environmental consciousness, and action, students can make a positive difference in their school community and beyond.
