PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Snowballs are flying along with jeers from an angry mob. Shots ring out in the crowd! But was it a massacre? The events leading up to the Boston Massacre were exciting. Put students in the time period with two different researched readings. (Included are directions for how to annotate a reading.)

Students hypothesize roots of the events that occurred and then investigate the different clues taking notes. Such a sneaky way to get students to analyze primary and secondary sources.

Students will take part in a mock trial. Included are personality sheets about four individuals at the Massacre, directions for a prosecution and jury. The students will use the clues provided to ask questions and construct opening and closing statements for their client. Also included are directions for how to set up the day of the mock trial. And how to get students involved during the entire process. .
