Students in Mr. Luke Kruse’s 8th grade social studies class are currently studying Colonial America. Students recently participated in two historical simulations to help engage them with the material. The first simulation was the Salem Witch Trials where students acted out the accusations. Students also acted out a New England Town Meeting to vote on how to spend the town tax funds.
