Macbeth Snap game

Macbeth Snap: introduces pupils to the characters and quotations around the murder of King Duncan. Resource also include differentiated cards, where pupils have to match the quote to character using prior knowledge of the text. Great as a lesson starter and goes particularly well with my other resource MACBETH CLUEDO, where these characters and quotes are used to find where the characters were located at the time of the murder, as well as possible motives. Both games are fun tools to familiarise students with the theme, plot, setting and characterisation. It has proved successful when trying to demonstrate discovery based learning.
