Students will gain basic knowledge about Shakespeare by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Shakespeare Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC. The website allows students to explore the key events of Shakespeare’s life in a very kid friendly website.
The webquest contains 45 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about Shakespeare and English life in the late 1500s and early 1600s. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest will take most students 30 to 50 minutes to complete. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 5-9. If you use this webquest at the high school level it will only provide basic background information about Shakespeare. I suggest checking out the website before making your decision to buy this webquest.
