Analysing Lady Macbeth as a character

Analysing Lady Macbeth as a character

I have attached a PowerPoint explaining how to use the board game, as well as a board game for the characterisation of Lady Macbeth. The aim of the board game is to sit the pupils in pair, with one A3 size board game, their Macbeth books, and two dice each. The need to roll the dice once and go along the corridor on their game, then on their second roll they go down the stairs until they land on one square. For example if they land on a square which says 'powerful' they need to find the best quote they can that describes Lady Macbeth as powerful, and write it on their board game. The winner of the game is the team who have the most amount of squares filled in with brilliant quotes. IN the end they will end up with 36 quotes on Lady Macbeth, which can later be used for their Point and their Evidence in their PEE paragraphs. Pupils get very competitive and feel like it's a game, it is a really good way of stretch and challenging your pupils to work independently. They are colour coded for difficulty and differentiation.
