⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love these introductory activities to Shakespeare. They really helped the students get familiar with the language of Shakespeare and gained their interest. I can use this with any Shakespearean play so it will be useful again in the future.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This resource was extremely helpful when introducing my students to Shakespeare. The students found the activities engaging, and I was able to project the document to model how to do the activity. All around great resource.
