Storyboard Text

  • Large States Representative
  • Small States Representative
  • I think that the states should have equal representation in our legislature. From this thought, I have created The New Jersey Plan. Small states have the same number of opinions as big states.
  • Small States Representative
  • I suggest The Virginia Plan, which states that the number of representatives should go by the state's population. This means that every man has equal representation in the law-making of this country.
  • Large States Representative
  • After a long debate, we have decided that we will have two houses in Congress. The House of Representatives will be based on population, while the Senate will have two representatives per state. We will know of this event as The Great Compromise.
  • Slave State
  • We think that slaves should count in the population of states. They are necessary to our life and they are also people.
  • Free State
  • Slaves should not be counted as part of the population. They do not make an income and they are not treated like humans.
  • Ya!
  • We have come to an agreement. All non-free people will be counted as 3/5 of a white man when considering a states population for taxing and representation issues. This will be known as The 3/5 Compromise.
