There are actually two assignments in this upload. The first is a cooperative project designed to familiarize students with the difficulties encountered by the first pilgrims: a group of students must research and record what their own trip might have been like, attempt to construct a colony, and deal with unforeseen obstacles along the way.
The second assignment was designed as a take-home exam, which shows the student's individual knowledge of what both pilgrims and Puritans hoped to ultimately accomplish by traveling to a "new world."
Basically, this product is an enhancement to instruction relative to early works taught in an American literature class. The take-home exam references Smith, Bradford, and Miller's, The Crucible; however, substitute your own works.
