Storyboard Text

  • Finally made it here from Virginia. Whoo, it's very hot here.
  • My, oh my! I still hate people just dumping trash on the street.
  • Good lord, we smell. Why?
  • Finally, I got that fly.
  • Welcome all to this convention. Thank you for coming.
  • It's because of the heat
  • We were supposed to fix the Articles of Confederation but now we decided to write a new government.
  • Also, we can't open any windows because this is a secret meeting
  • I have one!
  • Now to start, we need to come up with a way of giving states an accurate amount of representatives. So we need a plan.
  • I have one too!
  • George Washington and the other delegates make it to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia.
  • I call it the Virginia Plan. We should have a legislative branch with 2 houses. The states will have representaives according to its population.
  • Yes, go ahead Mr.Madison.
  • George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention and they decide to write a new government instead of just revising the Articles Of Confederation.
  • I call my plan the New Jersey Plan. This call for a legislative branch but with just one house. And each state will get one representative so it's all fair.
  • Not bad. I like it. Now, please present your plan Mr. Patterson.
  • The delegates discuss how many representatives can each state and how they will get it.
  • Mr. Patterson, your plan actually gives more power to the small states. My plan is better.
  • Mr. Madison, your plan gives way less voice to the smaller states so big states control most of the power.
  • That works too. Now we need to decide which to use.
  • James Madison presents his plan in the convention. He called for a legislative branch with two houses. The states had representatives according to their population.
  • William Patterson presents his plan to the convention. It called for a legislative branch with one house and each state got one representative.
  • Now they presented each plans strengths and weaknesses but couldn't decide. Then Roger Sherman had an idea.
