Pilgrims & the Mayflower Compact

Pilgrims & the Mayflower Compact

This Primary Source Set is designed to help students explore why the Pilgrims emigrated to America and the difficulties they encountered during and after their journey. In this set, students will analyze two primary sources -- the Mayflower Compact and a letter written by a Pilgrim who traveled on the Mayflower. Students will use these sources to make inferences about the values and beliefs of the Pilgrims. Students will also consider how the actual events of the “First Thanksgiving” were similar to or different from popular stories recounting the event.
