Activity Overview


A fun way for students to express their understanding of a story, its themes, and main characters, is to create a movie poster. As students read Hamlet, they may have a favorite stop on his journey or perhaps they enjoyed the entire story. Have students create a movie poster, complete with a title, casting, and an image that conveys important information from the story.

To make this a class assignment, consider giving each student a different act or character to focus on. When students complete their posters, they can be printed out and hung in the classroom. If you'd like to extend this to your entire Shakespeare unit, students can complete different posters for each play.
