We want equal representation!
No way! We are bigger, we get more!
Hey! Stop arguing! I have an idea...What about a compromise??
The smaller states wanted equal representation so they could have a say agaist the bigger states.
The Great Compromise
The House of Representativesand The Senate
The bigger states thought they should get more representation because they had a bigger population.
House of Representatives
But then they decided to come up with a compromise. This is Connie the Camel, she represents the Connecticut compromise and the bicameral house.
Thank you Connie!
They came up with The Great Compromise also known as the Connecticut Compromise which had the House of Representatives and the Senate.
The House of Representatives favored big states because representation was based on population and the Senate favored small states because it had equal representation for each state,
The states were now happy because they both had a say in the government.
