Follow the Directions and write a 7 sentence compact to govern your colony!


  • Unlike the Jamestown colonists (also English) or the Spanish, the New England colonists came to the New World for religious freedom

  • What does this mean?

  • Pilgrim – a person who travels a long distance for religious reasons

    *Pilgrims will settle Plymouth


Some Colonists (like the Pilgrims) Moved to The New World for Religious Freedom


  • Europeans did not have the freedom of religion – they had to follow the established faith of the monarchy (King or Queen)

  • People who did not were often PERSECUTEDfor their beliefs. This often meant being IMPRISONEDor EXECUTED (killed).

    OR


  • In September 1620, more than 100men, women, and children set sail aboard a small ship called the MAYFLOWER.

  • After a long, difficult journey they landed on the shore of CAPE COD, in present day Massachusetts.

  • They called their new settlement PLYMOUTH.
