The Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are used as the text for a series of activities. After being assigned one of these documents, groups highlight key words and isolate the main ideas, re-state these ideas in modern English, and list five examples of how the ideas are used today. Groups then present their revisions to the class.
