Shakespeare lesson plans: BBC Extension

This is a series of extension activities to be used alongside our Shakespeare lesson plans for kids.
Introduction
2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. LearnEnglish Kids has developed a series of short animated videos of six of Shakespeare's plays: A Midsummer Night's DreamRomeo and JulietTwelfth NightHamletMacbeth and Much Ado About Nothing.
These extension activities are designed to be used with primary learners alongside our Shakespeare lesson plans for kids which accompany the videos. They can be used as additional activities to extend learners' work on the plays or as alternative extension tasks. Most of the activities are suitable for use with any of the plays.
