Website Review: Shakespeare for Kids

SHAKESPEARE FOR KIDS from the Folger Shakespeare Library contains eight, web-based learning resources for students.
Using primary source documents, the eight pages immerse children in the history surrounding Shakespeare and his works. While some resources focus on facts, others incorporate challenges and other activities.
Librarians will find this website to be an interesting way to explore facts related to Shakespeare and his works. However, much of the content relies on students having some background knowledge of the time period and Shakespeare’s works. Consider using the content to create your own bulletin board or display featuring the works of Shakespeare.
For older students, the main website contains a wealth of information about Shakespeare.
