During the Shakespeare workshop, we heard the story of The Tempest. The Tempest opens in the midst of a storm, as a ship containing the king of Naples and his party struggles to stay afloat. On land, Prospero and his daughter, Miranda, watch the storm envelop the ship. Prospero has created the storm with magic, and he explains that his enemies are on board the ship. We loved finding out what happened to the enemies and Prospero!
We even got to act out being the characters in the play and played games that involved acting and using expression. We learned about the language that Shakespeare used 400 hundred years ago. It was so much fun; we can’t wait to learn about Shakespeare’s other plays!
