Introduce kids to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream using a storybook version of the play, then engage them in worksheets, a game, and a scene script to remember the plot. These materials are geared for 3rd-5th graders but could be used as low-end differentiation for middle school students as well. There are enough materials here to cover three to five 45-minute class sessions.


  • Basic lesson plan and materials explanations
  • Shakespeare storybooks resource list (actual storybook not included with this download)
  • Two worksheets are provided. They cover the same information but can be differentiated for age/ability of your students. Answer keys are included.
  • A trivia game that reviews the plot of the story. Game board, rules, scorecards, answer keys, and 36 trivia cards are included.
  • A mini script of a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream: the interactions between Oberon, Titania, Puck, fairies, and Nick Bottom (performance time about 8 minutes; the cast consists of 8 characters). The words all belong to Shakespeare. I have edited the scene to include lines that are easiest for children to speak and understand while still getting the storyline across.

If you are interested in just parts of this bundle, check out my TpT store for the Midsummer Night’s Dream trivia game and the Midsummer Night’s Dream mini script sold separately.
