During the late 1600s, the Puritans believed in witchcraft. To them, anyone who practiced it was consorting with the Devil. Between 1692 and 1693, there were over 200 cases of people being accused of practicing witchcraft, and the famous trials in Salem, Massachusetts are a deep part of our history. In this activity, students will create a narrative of important events during the Salem Witch Trials. Teachers can provide students with resources to use for research or a list of events, or allow them to research on their own.
