Storyboard Text

  • By: Haley Roberts
  • The Virginia and New Jersey plans and the Great Compromise
  •                    The Virginia Plan
  • I, from Virginia, say that we have more people to represent, so we need more representatives!
  • The Virginia plan demands that states with a larger population should gain representation
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • I, from New Jersey, say that smaller states should have the same amount of influence as the larger ones!
  • And New Jersey is demanding the opposite, that all states have equal representatives
  • One was the House of representatives which had a different number of representatives per state based on its size.
  • The Great Compromise (Part 1)
  • So a compromise was made, two houses, The House and The Senate were made
  • The Senate favored the little states, where each state provided two senators
  • The Great Compromise (Part 2)
  • But there was more to be compromised. The Southern states wanted slaves to count as part of the population so the could gain representatives and power. The 3/5 compromise was made, meaning 3/5 of the slave population counted towards the overall state population.
  • The End
