This is a summary of the play in 75 bullet points. The 15 bullet points / sentences which give the summary of each act are not presented in the proper sequence. Students are asked to number each event in the correct order 1 - 15.
Students who complete this task will have a comprehensive summary of the plot that they have created themselves. Instead of just presenting them with notes on the play, they are actively learning while creating their own.
It looks easy, but this can be quite challenging. This activity is an excellent group work activity. Students practice team work, speaking, (hopefully!) listening, and compromising skills.
Writing out their answers is a secondary re-enforcing task that could be assigned as homework.
This is a Word document. There are 5 pages for students to complete. The 3 page solution is also included.
The preview file contains some of the events from Act 1.
