Have you ever not wanted to go to school? Yeah, you learn stuff, yay, but when will you actually need to know all this stuff?
Like identifying the characteristics of elements in the periodic table? I am not a science-y person. I won’t be dealing with chemicals later in my life (excluding the stuff that’s everywhere like salt); I’ll probably be trying to avoid it. Biology is okay because it’s life and they can make people in labs now and that is kinda cool, you have to admit, even with the wrongness of it. When a mommy and a daddy love each other very much, a little human is made out of their love.
Also, math. I can use a calculator and get the correct answers much faster. Mental math isn’t too bad if the numbers are small and if they’re not, rounding is usually good enough. There are mini calculators with clips so you can attach it anywhere or just stick in your pocket, plus phones have calculators.
But what about life skills? Like how to deal with a zombie apocalypse and not panic? Some schools actually do. I’m jealous. Zombies vs Humans is an official game played by colleges, high schools, military bases, summer camps, and libraries and it’s been around since 2005. Here’s the official site.
It’s basically a game of tag with harmless weaponry (socks and Nerf guns). Zombies are a team; humans are the other one. There’s an original zombie and it eats humans and turns them into zombies by tagging them. Humans run and fight back by temporarily stunning them with their weapons.
It brings people together. They have fun and form bonds that could lead to permanent friendships.
And guess what? As our innovation project for our English class, we’re bringing this to our school. It’s going to be amazing. We’re going to have to raise money for everything and it’s going to be in school colors but I’m really excited for this.
