My history project. Hope you like it.
Here in Virginia we want representation in congress to be based on population because we have a larger population than any other state.
Here in Delaware we want representation in congress to be equal for every state because we have the smallest population of every state.
We will make the Great Compromise in order to have an agreement we will split congress into the House of Representatives which will have representation based on state population and the Senate which would have equal representation between all states.
Here in Virginia we want slaves to count as one person so we can have more representatives in congress because for every 25,000 people we get another representative.
Here in Pennsylvania we want slaves not to count in a states population so congress will be equal between free states and slave states.
We will make the 3/5 Compromise in order to have an agreement we will make a slave 3/5 of a free person so slave states will get a few more representatives in congress and the congress will stay mostly equal between free and slave states.
