Zombies are alive and well in nature and have been for over 48 million years! In this reading activity students will read about one of the stranger things that happens in nature, zombifying.
While taking attendance, each student gets a hand-out of the condensed Scientific American article, "Undead-End: Fungus That Controls Zombie-Ants Has Own Fungal Stalker." Students follow directions, complete the word puzzle, and are ready to discuss the article once attendance is complete.
Appropriate for Halloween week.
