Product Description
This offering is a six puzzle package five puzzles centering about Shakespeare's Hamlet, the sixth about Shakespeare, himself. I wrote three of the puzzles a couple years ago, a traditional crossword, a character search, and an arithmetical essay about Shakespeare. (If you DID buy the previous set of puzzles I DO have the new three puzzle set for sale individually on a different TpT site, Jay Waggoner.) This package consists of three new puzzles I've written in re Hamlet as well. I just wrote these three in May. With my crossword puzzles I have had some "complaints" that there are not enough theme clues in them. It's very difficult to put too many more than 6 or 7 themed clues in a 15 x15 grid and follow a couple of the "rules" of crossword constructing (180 degree symmetry and no two letter words), so I've made up what I call a pseudo-crossword consisting of 20 questions/clues whereby each of the clues has something to do with Hamlet or Shakespeare's poetry. I think you will find it more helpful in the classroom . . . though I like the peripheral things that you learn in a standard crossword myself. Another of the puzzles is a word search wherein the student searches for 18 of the somewhat antiquated words that Shakespeare uses in Hamlet. I HAVE given definitions of all 18 words in the list of words/expressions I'm asking the puzzle-doer to find. A third puzzle is another vocabulary puzzle . . . a matching template with two columns, words and brief definitions. The vocabulary words are words that Shakespeare uses in Hamlet that have slightly different meanings than what we use today. I believe all six puzzles can be very helpful yet fun in the classroom.
