Storyboard Text

  • Why are the Articles weak Mr. GOAT
  • As we gather here today, we will be talking about the weak Articles of confederation and why they are weak.
  • The Articles are weak because the Government is too weak to enforce the laws. Let's move on...
  • Yes! I would like to introduce the New jersey plan, this "plan" will call for each state to have one vote in Congress instead of the number of votes being based on population
  • Let me introduce the Virginia plan,this will make it that there will be a bicameral legislative branch. Any other suggestions?
  • That sounds like a great idea Mr. GOAT. This will call for each state to have one vote in Congress instead of the number of votes being based on population
  • Maybe we could combine both of our "plans" and make it into one GREAT plan. We could call it the Great Compromise!
  • Perfect! We can call this the 3/5 compromise! 
  • Their is a problem though, the south will have too many votes... I have an idea! lets make a compromise where only 3/5 of the slaves are counted!
  • But wait Mr. GOAT. Shouldn't they get something in return?
  • We could call it the commerce compromise!
  • Yes! We shall make an agreement protecting the interest - of slaveholders by forbidding congress the power to tax the export of goods from any state.
  • Sounds great! Let the ratification begin!
  • To make our constitution stronger, we should Ratify the Bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the constitution.
