Students will take a virtual journey to England and visit two historical locations associated with William Shakespeare. Based on your findings, you will do three different projects in groups of two in order to recreate and reflect upon what it must have been like and felt like to have been in Shakespeare's shoes 400 years ago.

Introduction

 

Are you ready to travel back in time to the year 1600?  Things were very different back then, but the people who lived in that world were very similar to us.  This assignment is meant to give you a glimpse of the past. 

You will research these mysterious places, write about them, write a poem similar to the poems that Shakespeare wrote, and present your findings to the class in a presentation that will take place on May 1st.  Good luck and have fun!
