This simple activity for teaching the Mayflower Compact includes both print and digital activities to help students analyze this important primary source!

Students are first provided with the Mayflower Compact primary source and a brief introduction. There is also a link to a suggested video introduction as well. Following this students either complete the interactive notebook accordion fold or a Google Doc version.

The Google Doc version of the resource is entirely editable of you need to make any changes also. A completed sample version of the interactive notebook page is also included for your convenience.

This makes for a great warm up before a lesson on the New England Colonies, in-class activity, or homework assignment.

You can also download this lesson along with a bunch of others in my 13 Colonies Unit Bundle.

Thanks so much for looking!
