To be or not to be the teacher that makes Shakespeare fun? The answer is obvious, isn't it?
This Hamlet and Shakespeare Bundle combines my Hamlet Comics and Activities and the Intro to Shakespeare Activity Bundle, two resources that bring laughter and engagement to the study of this classic play.
The Hamlet set includes summaries of each act. When I teach Hamlet, I don't like summaries that are too long or give too much away. These summaries not only provide a good visual reference point for each act but they are also fun. I have included Easter eggs in each panel using metaphors from the play that the students have to find.
Also, after each comic is a warm-up activity that gets students actively engaged in the play. Perfect to supplement your current Hamlet lesson plans.
In addition, I have added my Intro to Shakespeare Activity Bundle. There's a comic the introduces the life and times of the Bard and introduces students to the ins and outs of his language. There's a comic introduction to iambic pentameter as well as an activity with Sonnet 18 in case you want to give students a taste of Shakespeare before you dive into the play. Students can even write their own sonnets! Finally, there's a set of Shakespeare Skill Builder Bell Ringers to help introduce students to the skills they need to read Shakespeare in quick, daily five-minute lessons.
