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.
