Product Description
This sheet gives a very, very brief overview of the Salem Witch Trials and then gives 5 short, possible reasons that it happened. Comprehension and higher-order-thinking questions are at the end.
I used this as a sort of "fun" Halloween day activity, but it could be also useful for summarizing what happened in general.

This product is free because I adapted, combined, and edited resources I found on the internet -- I don't intend to imply that this is 100% all my original work (although my adaptations are very, very noticeable and creative.)
