To be or not to be an exciting teacher of Shakespeare? The answer is obvious! Make teaching Hamlet fun and engaging with this set of lessons and activities to help you lead students on a journey through one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

The most important thing you’ll find here are comic summaries of each act. You can hand these out to students before they read to give them a summary of what will happen in the play without giving too much away or use them as a quick review for students who have been absent. In either case, I bring the story to life with humor and fun, just as Shakespeare should be presented. Furthermore, there are Easter eggs in each comic - hidden metaphors and images from the play that students can find.

In addition, this set includes several activities that will engage students will the play. Many of Hamlet’s famous soliloquies are covered through in depth questions, and each act has a series of questions at the end that can be used to check how well students understand what happened.

In addition, there are activities that help students engage with Hamlet in creative ways such as:

A Hamlet paper doll that students create based on Ophelia’s description of his appearance

An opportunity to create now song lyrics to one of Ophelia’s songs

An activity where students write their own soliloquy

A group activity where students add an extra scene to the play, just like Hamlet did with The Murder of Gonzago

An analysis of famous paintings of Ophelia

Finally after they read the play:

Students will analyze whether or not Hamlet would be a good king

Students will research mental disorders that Hamlet might have had and provide evidence from the play in the form of a psychological analysis.
