This play is a fun and engaging way to introduce the Mayflower Compact. The play focuses on the Mayflower being off course, the unrest between the passengers, and the resulting decision to stay in the Cape Cod area and write a new agreement, the Mayflower Compact.
The follow up activity works well with continuing the lesson by learning what the Mayflower Compact actually says. It is a great way to incorporate using a primary source document into the lesson. Students put the words of the pilgrims into language they understand. It is a neat activity that I have used over and over.
Please check out my other plays and lessons on the TPT site. Let me know what you think! Thanks.
