    Nineteen people died as a result of the Salem Witch Trials (and two dogs werealso hanged). These people were all denied a Christian burial and were throwninto unmarked graves (no headstone, no ground, just dumped).

    YOUR TASK: 1. Read the colored handout which gives information on styles,pictures and the grave of Rebecca Nurse.

    2. You have to remedy that grave error (pun intended) by designing headstonesfor two (2) of the accused (BUT NOT REBECCA NURSE). To help you:

    a. Two (2) binders will be in the library and two (2) in my room which will tellwhat symbols or images mean on a headstone.

    b. If you want to see images you should put 17 th century gravestones into aweb search engine and the results will give you a variety of images to pick from.

    3. You will have a week to create the headstones that you believe should be on

    the graves of your two victims.

    4. EACH HEADSTONE MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING:a. The deceaseds name. b. A quote or saying that you believe will stand up over time and is

    appropriate for the deceased.c. Images/figures on the headstone which in your opinion represent

    how each of your victims should be represented.

    5. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO ONLY USE PAPER TOMAKE EACH HEADSTONE, but each headstone must have all of theabove. In addition, it may measure no more than 14 inches in width and no more,r:13,s:0,i:176

    than 33 inches in height (this is for ONE headstone, remember you have to doTWO).
