Poetgrl78 has created a fun little "scavenger hunt" about Shakespeare's life. This would be a great introduction to the playwright for high school students (or advanced middle school students).
I have always loved Shakespeare's plays and learning about the man adds insight into his works.
Just a heads up - you will get to do the scavenger hunt too because no key is included.
