A group of activities to introduce the Witch Trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. The introductory activity gives each student a "circumstance" under which they may have been accused of witchcraft in Salem. A PowerPoint continues the discussion of what kinds of elements could be used to accuse people of witchcraft in Salem. Questions are also included after a National Geographic web quest on the trials, including an individual "find-your-fate" style activity. Assessment of a graphic novel on the trials is included as well. The final activity involves reading theories on the causes of the afflictions, and students will share their opinion supported by details from the text.
