Springtime may bring April showers and May flowers, but the spring weather also brings students out to parks to perform Shakespeare.

Outdoor public performances are one of the many ways educators choose to tackle Shakespeare -- a subject saved for the end of the year in many schools. In the spirit of the season, HuffPost has decided to bring you a roundup of some of the great ways teachers are using to make the Bard accessible to young students.

San Diego Student Shakespeare Festival

On April 30, the San Diego Shakespeare Society hosted its sixth annual Student Shakespeare Festival. The event welcomes over 300 K-12 students who perform 10-minute segments of a play on five stages throughout San Diego's Balboa Park.

Bringing Shakespeare out of the classroom and out of the theatre makes for a lively atmosphere."Babies crying, people playing musical instruments, things that in a regular theatre we would think of as distracting elements, it's all there in Balboa Park," high school teacher Monica Hall told KPBS. Visit the San Diego Shakespeare Society's website for more information.
