Scenes from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Our fifth graders have been reading portions of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this year.  This unit begins with a review of Shakespeare’s life, and it emphasizes how his plays were popular and written for everyone.

The culmination of the unit was to act out one of the scenes in the play.
