Welcome to "Shakespeare is Elementary", a combined web site from the 1999-2000 Grade 2 and 3 class, the 2000-2001 Grade 4 and 5 class, and the 2002-2003 Grade 5 and 6 class of Crichton Park School!
All of the artwork, letters, quizzes, play reviews/summaries and journals of the original site were done by the children in the classes and downloaded onto this site by Mrs. Hanson, their teacher. Subsequent Shakespeare sites were fully the responsibility of the students.
Each year we spent time studying and researching William Shakespeare and his plays! We would like to thank some people and organizations that made it possible, including the Nova Scotia Teachers Union's Program Development Assistance Fund, which gave us a grant to help buy books, Neptune Theatre, GrassRoots Canada and Lois Burdett, author of the "Shakespeare Can Be Fun" series which inspired it all.
We hope this will help you get better acquainted with "the Bard" and his work and maybe inspire you to learn more.
