This is a resource to introduce classes to Themes in Macbeth. The pupils love it. there is a handdrawn version and a printed version.
Firstly, watch the GCSE video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zpms82p/video

You may disagree with some of the categories but feel free to amend.
This can be used when first teaching or as a revision tool.

I also use it for cover lessons, pupils pick one that they can do in class.
