Group task to introduce students to Shakespeare, Elizabethan England and theatre etc. They complete a fact find using the information supplied in packs. Great if you give a time limit at each table so they are against the clock.

    If not for the many typos I had to fix, this task would have received a 5 star review from me. It was a brilliant way to help my students in Years 9-10 learn a wide variety of information about Shakespeare's life and Elizabethan times. The typos were just a bit annoying, that's all.

    My Y9s set 4 and 5 both really engaged with this lesson: they found it so much fun to look for information in a variety of texts and we made it into a little competition>> awesome resource!
