Product Description
Four differentiated and creative ways to assess students’ understanding of Macbeth Act 3!

This is a great activity where kids can demonstrate their understanding of Macbeth Act 3 in a fun and creative way. It’s best completed collaboratively, but it could be used as an assessment.

The first activity provides 12 quotes.

Students are asked to highlight particular words or phrases, for example:
Macbeth:

To be thus is nothing,
But to be safely thus. Our fears in Banquo
Stick deep, and in his royalty of nature
Reigns that which would be feared. (3.1.48-51)

Highlight yellow the sentence that reveals feelings of insecurity.
Highlight orange the name of the man he fears.
Highlight blue the reason he fears this man.

Students then rewrite a section of the excerpt in their own words:

In your own words: “royalty of nature”

The second activity focuses on Banquo’s murder.

The scene is written everyday vernacular with Banquo’s and the murderers’ dialogue left blank for the students to fill in.

This is an effective way to review the scene and assess students’ understanding of the language.

There are 16 tasks in this section.

The third activity’s instructions read: “If Banquo’s ghost could speak…and only Macbeth could hear him…. Imagine what Banquo’s ghost would say. Fill in the missing dialogue.”

There are four imagined responses by Banquo that students must produce.

Finally, to cover the final summarizing scene in the act, I’ve created a Scottish newscast.


Students must fill in the blanks with the names, events, and places that Lennox reports on:

Good evening. This is Scotland Update; I’m Lennox reporting.
Tonight we report further strange occurrences surrounding the newly established King of Scotland, brave _______________: Macbeth compelled by loyalty to former King ________________, in a righteous rage after finding the gracious King murdered, killed the ______________________of his chamber. Subsequently,__________________, close personal friend of King Macbeth walked too late and was believed to be killed by his son, __________________, who fled the crime scene….

There are 19 blank spaces total.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
