TEACHERS WHO HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT HAVE SAID:

♥ "My grade 8s loved this unit!!! There is some really factual info in amongst the hideousness of discussing zombies...it got even the most reluctant readers involved! Thanks!!" (Thanks Julie R.)

♥ "My students LOVED this! I left it as a sub assignment, and a few of the class set of readings disappeared--for a bit. The offenders wanted to show someone (friend, family, etc.) what they read in science class. They wanted to discuss it the following day, so we spent about 30 minutes of our 50-minute class discussing the reading and asking questions." (Thanks Anonymous Buyer)

♥ "This is the coolest thing ever! Students are always asking about zombies, and if it really is possible. This is a great activity and sadly when I used it as a sub plan they didn't want to go back to the regularly scheduled lessons!This was a great activity for my students. They really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. Thank you!" (Thanks Herlinda B.)
