Farmingdale’s Howitt Middle School social studies and English students recently learned about Puritan culture by participating in a re-enactment of the Puritan court.

Students researched and acted out the roles of magistrates, witnesses and defendants and also presented testimonies, passed judgments and acted out punishments.

The activity provided students with a unique interactive experience, while also learning about the lives of the people in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1650’s.
