I use this as part of an intro package to spark students' interest in Shakespeare's times...and to help them realize what a different world he wrote his plays for.
I find it's important to show them just how different it was back then! They need some context.
This gives them some historical info on the first page, and how their SCIENCE was different - it explains the idea of humours (which is cool, because Shakespeare's characters relate to these - which students see when they fill in the chart)
The second page is a fill-in-the-blank of FUN FACTS! About Elizabethan England in general.
(I live for fun facts!)
