Investigating the Boston Massacre Students in Megan Jones’s 6th grade Unites States History class took on the role of both historians and investigators! Students were given "confidential" files upon entering the classroom. Each file had a summary of the Boston Massacre and then four primary sources. Students highlighted, annotated, and summarized these primary sources individually and in pairs. Once students complete their investigation of the primary sources they will be able to decide if justice was served at the Boston Massacre.
