Explain the details of when America was first sighted, along with the final leg of the journey on the ship to its final destination, with its many twists and turns! Introduce and discuss The Mayflower Compact. The class will then participate in a group discussion: “What are some things that you would have added to the compact?”, “Are there any things you would have changed or altered?” and “Why was this compact needed?” Next, explain that Susannah White gave birth to a son aboard the Mayflower. He was named Peregrine, from the Latin word that means "pilgrim." He was the first English child born in the new colony! Conclude the lesson with a map showing the entire path of The Mayflower, from England to America.
