This is one of my FAVORITE resources from my friend Tracee @mrsorman - kids have to decide if the quote provided was Shakespeare or Tupac. I have to be honest, I’m not sure I’d know all of the answers even though I’m a HUGE Tupac and Shakespeare fan 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ Anyhow, swipe right to see if you can figure it out!
