When studying the Boston Massacre I created a 5 station partner work to investigate what happened that night. Each station I created 2 cards that tell the students what to do at each station. In partners one is the Loyalist and the other is the Patriot. They go through the stations using a picture of the Boston Massacre and investigate with each other what happened. There is even an eye witness account station where the students interview each other and based on the prior knowledge we talk about, they tell each other what happened from their own perspective (as Loyalist or Patriot). It's a fun activity and gets the students really engaged.
