But, to kick off, we need some information: The first day, we’ll visit the website SparkNotes, where we’ll watch an animation video summary of the play and learn about the main characters and topics and then we'll go through some details, helped by a multimedia summary. The second day we’ll watch some scenes from Kenneth Branagh’s version of the play.
The project consists on making a big size collage of scenes, characters and quotes from the play, pasted on a drawing of Elsinor Castle and a mural gathering the essays, drawings and summaries that we make to prepare the collage. We include a PDF guide intended to help teachers when preparing a similar study.
