The virus is spreading! Zombies are everywhere! Can you survive?

You will create a project that:

  • Creates a narrative piece about zombies-- must include characters, conflict, and elements of a short story

    • write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details, and well-structured event sequence

    • analyze a complex set of ideas or sequence of events and explain how specific individuals, ideas, or events interact and develop over the course of the text

You must also use a tech skill of your choice to show off your skills. How you deliver your story is up to you. Be creative and have fun with this!
