The witches in Macbeth are intriguing to students.
Their association with Macbeth contributes to his characterization.
Their messages are symbolic, mysterious and misleading---tragic for Macbeth.
This resource is to be used when students complete their study of Act 4, Scene 1 of Macbeth.
This is a creative group project that requires students to study the witches' song, the apparitions' prophecies, and Macbeth's reactions, and complete the following tasks:
---Compose a song listing ingredients that a modern-day witch would drop in the cauldron
---Create a poster of the prophecies noting symbolism and message
---Write a diary entry for Macbeth revealing his musings over the prophecies and his thoughts about the throne.
I provide a scoring rubric.
This product was created with Word. Editable.
This is a fun activity that can be as challenging as you want it to be.
I usually give groups three class periods (about an hour and 45 minutes) to prepare their props and "rehearse" their presentation.
Kids love this project, and it is a fun way to discuss
characterization, plot, and symbolism.
Thank you for your consideration of this product.
