  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

Do you want to add some mirth and high spirits to your “Romeo and Juliet” unit?  Your students will interact with the tale of the star cross'd lovers through fun and engaging comics that use Shakespeare's language to present the tale. To add to the merriment, there are Easter eggs hidden throughout the comics -- metaphors and other images from the play that are hidden in the illustrations for students to find. 


  • One page comics for each Act. Act IV and V are presented as one comic. Each comic uses dialogue taken straight from the play.
  • Warm activities for each act that get kids interacting with the text before they read (or you can use them afterward as well).
  • Answer keys to all activities.
  • Lots of funny stuff. (Trust me.) 


  • As a quick overview for each act. They are better than online summaries that go into too much detail or give too much away. 
  • As support for reading the actual text instead of translated versions.
  • As a review for each act to make sure that every student has understood the material.
  • As a catch-up for absent students.
  • Coloring pages (students love this, and it decreases their stress)
  • As a fun way to approach the Bard


  • 90% of information processed by the brain is visual. 
  • Comics dramatically increase the retention of material. 
  • They also aid in the understanding of difficult material.
  • They serve the needs of visual learners and provide new opportunities for those with learning differences while benefiting all learners.
  • They are fun!


“Your cartoons have been such a help to my visual learners, and I love the warm-up activities associated with each act.  We have enjoyed them, and I will use these for years to come!”

“My kids absolutely loved these, especially finding the funny images or easter eggs thrown in. Thanks!”
