Start of Act IV and Four-Square Activity



It is amazing how quickly we read through plays! It seems like we just started Macbeth, but already we're up to act IV. Today we read through the end of the first scene in act IV. In this scene, Macbeth meets the Three Weird Sisters again and demands more prophecies from them. In turn, they show him three apparitions.  Each of these apparitions gives Macbeth a cryptic warning and then vanishes. 

To demonstrate your understanding of this scene, you all chose one of the three apparitions and completed a four-square visual. I have enclosed the instructions from the board and a student sample as pictures in this blog entry. If you were absent, please see me for a blank copy of the four-square activity and read up to the end of act IV.i.
