Product Description
This product features an engaging activity that will fit in perfectly with your Shakespeare unit!

Students get the chance to create the epitaph for the gravestone of the most revered writer of all time. The activity encourages students to be thoughtful with their knowledge of William Shakespeare but also to be creative with their inscriptions. This can be done in or outside of class and also works as a great emergency substitute plan as no preparation is needed for this activity besides printing off the templates. To be festive, I love to give this assignment on the anniversary of Shakespeare's actual death, April 23, but with the subject at hand, it also works well as a Halloween lesson plan.

Product Includes:

- Complete Assignment Directions
- Scoring Guide
- 3 Templates - 2 blank for use in class, 1 editable template for use on the computer
- 1 Teacher Model

In order for students to gain the most out of this assignment, It is recommended for use in conjunction with the Shakespeare Scavenger Hunt by Language Arts Excellence.
