After you’ve finished Act 1 of Shakespeare’s timeless tale of tragic love, Romeo & Juliet, challenge your students with this fun, hands-on activity in which they construct the opening prologue from Act 2 of R&J using only a pair of scissors and their wits!

Lots of fun as your budding Shakespearean scholars use their understanding of his language and sonnet structure to decode The Bard’s meaning. A great way to recap the action of Act 1 and build anticipation for Act 2. Also, it’s just plain fun to solve a puzzle with a friend!
