Storyboard Text

  • I wonder whats going on in there. Have they even made any progress in the convention?
  • Yeah, why are they keeping everything a secret? We should all be able to know what they are talking about.
  • I don't know what they are doing, but we should go before the mosquitoes get us. I don't want to get sick.
  • Yeah, let's go.
  • How should we handle representation?
  • We should have representation based on population!
  • But that's not fair! Smaller states will get less representation! We should have an equal number of representatives!
  • The citizens of Philadelphia wonder about what is being said in the constitutional convention, and why what is being said is a secret.
  • I think we should have two houses. One based on population, and another with equal representation.!
  • The summer the constitutional convention took place during was a hot one. Mosquitoes were a problem and the streets were littered with trash. It was very easy to get sick.
  • Thats easy, we just count them as three fifths of a person.
  • Ok, but how do we count slaves?
  • In the convention lead by George Washington, the delegates from 12 states, talk about how to deal with representation in the new government. James Madison proposes the Virgina plan and William Paterson presented the New Versey plan.
  • Well, that was the last thing to go over. Should we sign it now?
  • What about our rights? Will they be protected in this new government?
  • Roger Sherman proposes the great compromise. The great compromise had two houses of representation. One would be based on population while the other had equal representation for every state.
  • Roger Sherman presents the three fifths compromise. The compromise solves the problem of how slaves would be counted to the total population. They would all be counted as three fifths of a person
  • Some delegates are scared or their rights not being protected under the constitution. They refuse to ratify the constitution until a bill of rights is added.
