Storyboard Text

  • All of the delegates met at Carpenters hall in Philadelphia for the constitutional convention. Robert Morris voted for George Washington to lead the Convention and everyone agreed. This was when George Washington was voted into the executive branch of government as the president.
  • They all shared their ideas about the government to George Washington. Many knew the issues with the governemnt, and that was their goal to fix. One man, Edmund Randolph, believed that there should be three branches of the government called The Virginia Plan.
  • There should be three branches of government. The legislature, the executive, and the judiciary. The votes hsal be given out based on the population and there shall be two houses, one for the staes delagates, and one for the votes.
  • Many of the delegates disagreed wether the law was right for the country or if it should be forgotten. Some thought that the Virginia Plan was not going to straighten out their government.
  • NO! WE DISAGREE!
  • YES!!
  • Another problem that the delegates knew they had to fix was how they were going to give votes t each state. William Paterson came up with the New Jersey law, which gave one vote for each house. The big states did not like this because they had lots of people and this would not fi their big population.
  • I say each house gets one vote no matter the size. There should be one house and one legislature in each house!
  • Like before, some agreed with the law, and some didn't. Fortunately, the delegates came up with a compromise called the great compromise. This gave everyone what they wanted.
  • YES!!
  • We shall have the Great Compromise! There will be two houses! There will be a senate who gives each stae equal representation and the hosues will have representation according to state populationn!
  • Everyone got what they wanted and were all happy. They hoped that this new idea would work and not fail. The delegates said goodbye and left the convention.
  • Goodbye my friends!
