Is your study of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as dead as the characters in Act 5? Yikes! Liven things up with this activity.
This game of inferences is modeled after the game of Clue, where students make guesses based on process of elimination to arrive at a solution. While, this is not a comprehension review game, you can use this at the end of the unit, or you could use it as a pre-reading activity to introduce characters, setting, and symbols to students. It is always a hit with students!
