Storyboard Text

  • Ever since we declared independance from britain with the declaration of independence our new governing document, the Articles of confederation has sucked
  • I agree all the states need to get together in a constitutional convention and revise it
  • I have an idea let's have a unicameral system where each state gets one vote and call it the New Jersey plan
  • No, bad idea we need it to be based on population and call it the Virginia Plan
  • I have an idea let's make a great compromise and take ideas from both plans and have one house based on population and the other have two per state
  • What are we going to do about slaves? I think they should be counted as people
  • I do not think they are counted as people Let's compromise and make 5 slaves count as 3 people and call it the 3/5ths compromise
  • Who is going to have all of the power?
  • There are going to be 3 branches who will split the power and call it separation of powers
  • Checks and balances help with keeping our government from falling apart and all three branches from gaining more power. Judicial branch- studies and interprets the laws Executive branch- executes the laws Legislative branch- makes laws and changes laws based on the constitution
  • us federalists like your idea!
  • Let’s take a vote… yea ok federalists win. Now we have to ratify the constitution
  • No us anti-federalists want a bill of rights before the constitution
