With the right amount of scaffolding, young students can read complicated texts. Included in this packet is the text of the Mayflower Compact. Students will read once, then twice, underlining words they know in blue, and words they don't know in red. Students will reread the text for better understanding, then answer some simple questions. Students will reread the text, then write the main idea of The Mayflower Compact. Students will then look at a copy of THE original Mayflower Compact, noticing what is different about the writing.
