Bring Romeo and Juliet to life with these living timeline cards! This interactive activity allows the students to better understand the impact timing has on the play, and they have fun in the process!
There are 25 cards with writing and three blanks cards in case you want to add any. I give one card to each student and have the class arrange themselves in the correct order without talking. I give them two or three tries and time them. After each round, I have them hand me the cards back, shuffle them up, and pass them back out. I make it into a cross-class competition to see what period can get the fastest time, and I add time penalties on for talking and for mistakes. The students really enjoy it!
