The Mayflower Fate Cards tell some of the stories of the ship’s voyage to the New World in 1620 through the words of a child who is 8-12 years of age. They are coupled with the original description of the event told in William Bradford’s journal, Of Plymouth Plantation. They are an excellent tool for introducing the difference between a primary and a secondary source, and may also be used as a sequencing tool, to compare language and conventions, to identify spelling inconsistencies, and to get information about the trip. There are 32 fate cards, which tell of events from when the Speedwell left the Netherlands until the Mayflower arrived in New England.
A template is included so that students may add more cards to your collection.
