Product Description
Directions: 1. Pick the three moments that you thought were/will be the most important moving forward in the play. Decide why they are important. Fill this information into the blank worksheet below. 2. Work in your groups to create a silent statue of that moment. (Pay attention to detail: how you arrange yourselves, your facial expressions, the space you’ve left between one another, etc.) 3. Perform your silent statues for the class. (Every person does not have to participate in every statue, but each person must participate in at least 1.) Your classmates will get a chance to guess which moment your statue represents. 4. When they guess or after they fail to guess correctly, explain which moment you were representing with your statue and why you believed that moment was important.

This activity leads to great discussions. It was very successful when I used it with Hamlet. You can use this as review after reading several scenes or at any point during the play to check for understanding and review plot.
