Help your students make sense of Shakespeare's use of figurative language in his play, Macbeth, with this collection of 56 task cards.
Each card features a different passage from the play (organized in chronological order), with a prompt instructing students to identify and explain how a device is used within the passage. A recording sheet is included, along with a detailed answer key.
Figurative language referenced on the cards includes simile, metaphor, personification, alliteration, assonance, allusion, apostrophe, hyperbole, imagery, and foreshadowing.
There are a variety of way you can use these cards in your classroom. Use them after you finish reading each act as a way to test student knowledge or after you've finished reading the entire play to review. They can also be used as bell ringers, exit slips, quizzes, or discussion prompts. These work will as an independent, paired, or group activity.
To make the cards last, print once in color and laminate.
