Galloway Ponies | Complete Lesson Pack

$20.00

This lesson pack coordinates with Ep 153 of That Shakespeare Life, in which we cover the history of Galloway Nags (aka Galloway Ponies). The lesson covers the origins of the Galloway pony, and how it was used during Shakespeare's lifetime. We cover why it appears in Shakespeare's play, Henry IV Part II, and we discover a new resource uncovered by Miriam Bibby, our guest in Ep 153, that suggests not only was Shakespeare's reference NOT the earliest reference in literature to the Galloway Nag, BUT the reference Miriam discovered may indicate Shakespeare's reference was an inside joke about current events going on when he wrote the play. In addition to the history guide, the pack also contains 5 printable worksheets so that your students can explore the history they are learning about while they listen to the episode.
