I love William Shakespeare. I love the language, the time-period he lived in, and the timeless themes that his plays have. I tend to teach a lot of Shakespeare. I like to do the Shakespeare Scavenger Hunt in my school’s library but you can do it in the computer lab as well. It’s just a basic series of questions about Shakespeare and his time-period. I like to have my students go to the library because it gives them a chance to move around. Doing a scavenger hunt like this is also more fun than just sitting there and reading a biography about the author. This activity can be done individually or in a group. I usually give a prize to the winner. I like to give five points on the next quiz as a prize. It's a fun way to start any Shakespeare unit. I have included an answer key for your convenience.

*I have updated this item to include the Common Core State Standards for grades 6-12.
