In this activity, students use documents from the Puritan period to analyze the beliefs of the Puritans and their impact on American history. The focus of the activity is a "walk through a Puritan Graveyard" with pictures of actual gravestones. The activity includes 10 documents, 9 pictures of Puritan gravestones, an anticipation guide, an ACT-Style reading and a "build-an-essay" activity. Plus, included in the download are 9 hi-res images of the Puritan gravestones so that they can be printed out in large format and used to create a virtual graveyard in the classroom or outside. Ideal for an A.P. class, but can be adapted to any high school or middle school curriculum.
The preview includes 9 pages from the document.
