A fun way to teach the Salem Trials is to have an actual trial in class. This is a fun activity that will have the students talking about it for years to come. This activity takes place in the classroom or wherever you choose and has "made up characters." The scenes are a lot of fun and will have your students extremely engaged. The play was created by me to find a unique way to teach the Salem Witch Trials. No better way to experience history than to take part in it. A major concept in this play is the lack of evidence to convict someone of a crime.
