Product Description
"Blood" is used 109 times throughout Macbeth.

The symbolism varies with character and situation; however, I've narrowed the
"blood types" to G--Guilt, A---Ambition, and H---Honor.

In this activity, students examine a quote and choose the correct test tube: G, A, or H.

There are 15 quotes from the first two acts.

The first one is completed as an example:

Duncan: "What bloody man is that?" (1.2.1).

Students would draw an arrow to the test tube labeled blood type "H" for Honor.

The soldier's blood represents honor; he's been in battle fighting to keep King Duncan on the throne.

I provide a SUGGESTED Key for this blood symbolism activity.

Some of the quotes’ symbolism can be interpreted differently, prompting kids to make different selections for blood type.

However, in my experience, students benefit from the discrepancies and the opportunity to champion their answers.

Additionally, this resource is a great way to review the first two acts of the play because it requires students to put the quotes in the context of the play, recall the point in the plot from which the quote is extracted, note the character’s motivation to make the statement, and study the imagery.


Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
