There are no definitive answers as to what caused the Puritans to embark on the witch hunt that led to the Salem Witch Trials. This product places the students into the roles of detectives exploring what a possible theory could be and what evidence supports that theory. From listing out evidence, creating interviews and transcribing answers to those questions, to a final case report, students are asked to put themselves into the scene and investigate the occurrences. A great follow up to Jane Yolen's Mystery from History: The Salem Witch Trials.
