Introduction and Week 1

This week, we are going to look at Shakespeare's life and his world. In order to get the kids to start thinking about Shakespeare, I found this "Scavenger Hunt" on-line at: www.asdk12.org/staff/lang_martin/pages/AP/Hunt. The kids can use internet resources and library resources. A couple of good books for information are: Usborne's World of Shakespeare and Michael Rosen's Shakespeare: His Work and His World. A paper replica of the Globe Theatre is available at http://www.papertoys.com/. Print it out on cardstock. It is a lot of fine cutting, but can be done over a few days. I am not sure if there is a way to enlarge the image or not, but it would probably be a little easier to assemble.
