This is a great activity to help students become familiar with the layout and format of the actual text of Shakespeare's Macbeth. It has students looking through all of the preface and background information, as well as the first scene in Act 1 to understand all of the parts of a Shakespearean play. This activity can be done in groups or individually. I used it after reading 1.1 and discussing the scene, and had students finish it for homework. Answer key is included.
Note: I used this activity with the Oxford School Shakespeare copy of the play (ISBN: 9780198324003) that we had in my school, but the pages numbers may need to be adapted with a different version.
