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. Through some close reading, discussion, and a variety of language games, students have become more comfortable with Shakespeare’s language and performing. The culmination of the unit was to act out one of the scenes in the play.
