Storyboard Text

  • Here we are at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia! I believe the changes we make to the Articles of Convention will help us become a better country!
  • Yes! These changes will be great and also made in secrecy as well!
  • P.U.!!!
  • These Articles of Confederation need a lot of work done to them!
  • Maybe we just need to make a new government to fix it instead!
  • The delegates from all across america have gathered to form the Constitutional Convention and they have no idea they're about to create an entire new government instead of tweaking the old one!
  • I'm Edmund Randolph here to present The Virginia Plan! This plan includes having two houses, both having the number of representatives based on population by state.
  • This plan is completely unfair to the small states like New Jersey! It gives the big states way too much power because of their bigger population!
  • The delegates soon discover that the living conditions in summer in the town of Philadelphia aren't perfect, even being in the greatest hotel at the time. Since the windows were closed and AC hadn't been invented yet, it was extremely hot. Not to mention mosquitos were also a huge concern. P.U.!!! Everyone stinks too!
  • I'm William Patterson, here to present The New Jersey Plan! This plan makes only one house, and each state gets an equal amount of representatives no matter their population.
  • This is completely unfair to the big states because it gives the smaller states too much power!
  • As the delegates start discussing they realize a new government is needed!
  • I've got it! I, Roger Sherman, have made The Great Compromise! This plan makes two houses, one based on population and the other each state gets only two representatives! These two houses will make up the legislative branch of our government.
  • The Virginia Plan, written by James Madison and presented by Edmund Randolph, makes two houses and the number of representatives per state based solely on population. It is unfair to the smaller states because then they will have no voice at all.
  • The New Jersey Plan, written and presented by William Paterson, makes one house where every state has 2 representatives, no matter the size or population of the state. It is unfair to the bigger states because it gives the people of the smaller states more voice than someone who lives in a bigger state.
  • Delegate Roger Sherman has come up with the compromise that will stand the test of time. It well lives up to its name, The Great Compromise. This plan makes two houses, one based on population and the other each state gets only two representatives! These two houses will make up the legislative branch of our government.
