Product Description

Students will act as detectives to research the Salem Witch Trials for the family of one of the accused villagers, Rebecca Nurse. Students will first create a detective notebook and then search for clues scattered around the classroom. As they find more clues, students will start to unravel the mysterious Salem Witch Trials and ultimately determine whether or not there were really witches in 1693-1693 Salem, Massachusetts. They’ll wrap up the activity by writing a concluding detective report and completing an Exit Ticket.

**This makes a great content-filled activity for Halloween!**
