Storyboard Text

  • Constitutional Convention
  • We have gathered here today to revise the Articles of Confederation.
  • Virginia and New Jersey Plans
  • That plan will not benefit my smaller population state!
  • That won´t benefit my larger population state!
  • The Great Compromise
  • I think in the house the number of representatives should depend on population and in the senate we should get equal representation.
  • After Shay´s Rebellion, many Americans thought the government was falling apart.  So congress met at Independence Hall to revise the Articles of Confederation.  There delegates contradicted each other and fought over compromises.
  • Three Fifths Compromise
  • Perhaps they should count as three fifths of a person.
  • Now that we made that deal, I do not want to have to talk about slaves for 20 years.
  • The New Jersey and Virginia Plan were two that did not work.  They both benefited larger or smaller states and delegates did not like that.
  • Slaves
  • This plan was known as the Great Compromise. One part of the plan favored the people, and one favored the states.
  • Signing the Constitution
  • If you agree with the changes, please come sign the Constitution.
  • The Three Fifths Compromise made slaves three fifths of a person to even out population in the states so southern states did not have more people.
  • They shouldn´t count as a person at all!
  • Slaves should count as a full person!
  • Slave trade was another compromise.  Southern states made a deal that there could be no more talk of slavery for the next 20 years.
  • That sounds reasonable.
  • Finnaly the Constitution was ratified.  It went into action even though three men apposed it and did not sign it.
  • We will not sign it!
