Product Description
This is a 19 slide, animated, power point presentation on the Mayflower Compact and the Primary Sources used to validate its legitimacy. Each of the slides are editable so you may adjust the presentation as required.

In 1620, a religious group of people from England who called themselves, “Pilgrims” landed off-shore of what became Providencetown, MA. They were the first Europeans to build a settlement in New England and called the settlement “Plymouth.” They came to the New World, because they were “Separatists” (from the Church of England). These “Puritans” were traveling on the ship “Mayflower.”

A Winter storm blew them far north of their destination and they landed outside the limits of the Virginia Company charter. The laws of Virginia Company did not apply to this location. So, the Pilgrims set about to create new laws to keep law and order. The document they created became known as the “Mayflower Compact.”

The men created the compact by writing down on a large sheet of paper simple rules/laws that they all could all agree upon. They all agreed that these laws were for the good of the colony and must be obeyed. All 41 men signed the Mayflower Compact, November 1620.

The Mayflower Compact is important because it established the idea of self-government and majority rule. Self-government is where people create laws for themselves and majority rule is the idea that whatever the most people want is what will happen.

The presentation covers the following:
