Renaissance Faire/Shakespeare Unit

I LOVE Shakespeare!!!! I love teaching it...and I LOVE the clothing from the time period. I remember doing one in 8th grade when we read Merchant of Venice, and in 9th grade for our Romeo & Juliet unit. I loved it. My mom made my costume, and my sister's when she had her's, and my group made hot cross buns.

Talk about a throw back, here's a pic of me in 8th grade at our Renaissance Faire next to our Hot Cross Buns booth. [I'm in the back row, on your right]

In past years, I've only had 2ish weeks to get through my Shakespeare unit with the kids, but this year, due to changing a novel out, I've got 3!!! So I decided to do a fun introduction activity that the kids will never forget:)

This unit has so much! 
-Lesson plans
-Direction sheet [with rubric]
-Parent Volunteer flyer
-Shield outlines for the boys to make shields to go with their cardboard swords
-A banner to cut out and hang
-And Renaissance-looking street signs

I'm so excited to try this out this year, and now you can too with the unit on TPT.

And one of the pieces of the banner:
A good day to you ;)
