Product Description
Macbeth includes many unanswered questions about the motivations of certain characters and what happens to them after the play.

For this activity, each student is assigned one of 17 scenarios that relate to unanswered questions in the play, such as:
-Describe what led to the witches disobeying Hecate by giving Macbeth the prophecies in Act I.
-Explain why Lady Macbeth said in Act I that she knew what it was like to nurse a child, but Macduff said in Act IV that Macbeth had no children.
-Describe what the witches did next after Macbeth died.

Each student has to write 1-2 paragraphs responding to scenario he/she was assigned, using imaginative details as well as evidence from the play. This activity is a lot fun when students debate the validity of one another's responses. It's a great way to reinforce the theme of fate vs. free will.

A brief, adaptable rubric is included.
