Storyboard Text

  • They're trying to find ways to fix the Articles of Confederation, since they didn't work out very well.
  • What are they doing in there?
  • As you may know, the articles of confederation have not been the best documents to use for our nation, therefore we will be fixing some issues. 
  • Welcome, thank you for attending this meeting. 
  • The states have too much power! When we have to pass a law, all states need to approve of it! This has made our government weaker. What should we do?
  • Giving the government all the power will damage our nation that we worked hard to make!
  • We shouldn't give the government too much power. If we do, this country will end up like Britain! 
  • We will not give the government all the power. But we must give it more power than it has now. When we want to pass a law, we will only pass it if most states support it. Therefore, the states will have some power, but not too much.
  • That is a very good idea. 
  • Agreed. 
  • Then limiting the states' power it is!
