PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a terrific game to help students become familiar with terms that come up again and again in Shakespeare's plays.

The sheets are designed so that the first two are printed, then reloaded into the printer and printed on the flip side. This is why pages 3-4 are backwards (i.e. the definition for "anon" should be "soon; in a minute" and should be printed on the flip side of the "anon" card).

Students can play this game in a variety of ways. I've done it as part of a station rotations class period, and this is one station. Students had the option to quiz each other using the cards as flashcards, or to lay out all of the cards with the "Shakespeare Says" side facing up and work as a team to guess the contemporary meanings.

After students finished this game, they had a worksheet that asked them to write sentences in modern language, but substituting the Shakespearean words they've learned (i.e. "Thou art late to school again!")
