Product Description
70 games and activities await in this fun packed resource! Games for individuals and for teams are included. Most help to review the play. Some involve acting, and some a bit of writing; several demand frantic speed, whereas others can be enjoyed at a relaxed pace. There are even games which could be used for marks; others are just for fun. As Dr Shimi Kang has observed: “Play is the superfood of learning.”
Only half a dozen of the games require use of devices. Several require a pen and a piece of paper from the recycling bin. One thing unites all of the many games in this resource; they are all either especially devised or adapted to suit the study of Shakespeare’s most accessible tragedy.
