Character life boxes for Hamlet.
One of the activities I like to do for the Shakespeare play we study is have the students choose a main character and create a keepsake box for them. The box can contain anything that represents who the character is or things they may have collected according to their traits. The items must fit into the box and the students present their boxes to the class. They describe each item, how it relates to their character and why they chose to include it in the box. Some chose to decorate their box and others chose a box that went with their character. These are a few that were done by my students this year. A great activity that works for all of the plays.
