  • Delegates from most of the 13 colonies gathered for the Constitutional Convention from May-September,1787.
  • The Great Compromise
  • What a great idea.
  • I ,Roger Sherman, have thought of this.... The Great Compromise.
  • It´s okay...
  • The people who supported The Virginia plan wanted legislative representation to go by population. This was in favor of states with larger population. Big population=more representation=more legislative power
  • The Three-Fifths Compromise
  • I think it´s a great idea.
  • Three-fifths! Why just not count them at all?
  • The people who supported the New Jersey Plan wanted legislative representation to be equal for all the states. This was in favor for smaller states. Small population=less power
  • The Branches of Government
  • The Great Compromise is what Roger Sherman came up with to settle the differences between the two groups. He took the ideas for legislative representation from both groups.
  • The three-fifths compromise is what the delegates came up with on how to count slaves in the population. So they came up with slaves being three-fifths of a person.
  • There are three branches of government. Legislative, which is congress. Executive, which is the president and his cabinet. And judicial, which is the justices and the Supreme Court.
