    Shakespeare ~3rd & 4th Grade

    Saturday, January 30th, 2016

    My boys studied Shakespeare to go along with Galileo and the Conquistadors.

    That is why I love learning via timeline, you get to learn about things that don’t seem to go together.


    They really liked “The Winter’s Tale“, “Will’s Quill“, and “Hamlet.”

    Although my oldest(9) read a lot of the Lamb’s Tales of Shakespeare as well and seemed to like it(free version available for Kindle).

    Later on I found some really interesting interactive sites for Shakespeare.

    Literary Wonderland has a really cool rap version of Macbeth!

    The BBC site has a fun game they can play, here.

    They also have a 60 second version of Shakespeare that is like reading about the tale in the newspaper which I thought was fun, here.

    My boys spent a lot of time on the Modern Library site, playing their shakespeare quizzes and games.

    Their favorite part of this study was probably the live sword fight from Macbeth that we saw at the Natural History Museum in OKC.


    They could probably watch sword fights all day.

    Because they are boys…

    Do you have a favorite resource for Shakespeare?

    Just found this so I am adding it for my future reference.
