Shakespeare Kahoot!’ing: “Is this a kahoot which I see before me?”

Learning Shakespeare? Join us for a few kahoots of epic drama, little known facts, and masterful insights that celebrate the life of one of the greatest writers of all time.

As the inimitable William Shakespeare once said, “All the world’s a stage” – and with the 400th anniversary of his death happening on April 23rd, there’s no better time to celebrate Shakespeare’s works in style!

With 37 plays and 154 sonnets under his belt and a legacy that transcends time, William Shakespeare was nothing short of a mastermind – and a well studied one, at that! Just in time for his big 400, we made sure to compile a list of stellar kahoots that celebrate his art as fabulously as his prose.

From modern age spins to a comprehensive overview of his history, there’s a kahoot for everyone in this bundle. And speaking of bundles… just like collaboration is what makes actors in his play soar to new genius heights, these kahoots are even better played in Team Mode!

Let’s playeth, shall we?
