Zombies have become very popular recently with the creation of the Walking Dead TV series and movies such as World War Z and Warm Bodies, but zombies have been around in media and in history for much longer thanyou probably realize. One of the first popular Zombie films was Night of the Living Dead - filmed in 1968 and this depiction of the lurching flesh eating zombie is the origin of most of the consequent zombie films and tv shows.
The task belows gives a little history of the zombie and includes some reading comprehension activities
In this task you will be gathering information about what a zombie is and how it behaves and using that to create a poster with your interpretation. Check the assignment sheet for details on what needs to be included on the poster. I have also included some websites below for further research.
