Storyboard Text

  • Eventually, a Constitutional Convention was needed to revise the constitution. The Articles of Confederation was a failure.
  • Did you guys hear about what happened on the surface?
  • They also established the Articles of Confederation in order to have a government system in place.
  • I heard that the Declaration Of Independence was being written which gives the colonies independence from Great Britain.
  • The Virginia Plan was another idea which benefited large states because it have them more votes.
  • So what came out of the Constitutional Convention?
  • Eventually, they came to an agreement called the Great Compromise which created two houses. This benefited both the smaller and larger states.
  • The New Jersey Plan was an idea which proposed that each state got one vote in congress instead of votes based on population. This benefited smaller states.
  • The Northern states did not think slaves should count as votes. The Southern had way more slaves, therefore they did.
  • What about the Three-Fifths Compromise?
  • The Southern and Northern States were very divided on the topic of how they should count slaves.
  • Also, each slave was counted for 3/5th of the vote per state.
  • What is the separation of powers and how do checks and balances and the branches of government help with it?
  • Checks and balances is a system where you can overturn something of other branches or block certain things of the other branches.
  • Well, the Separation Of Powers is an act of legislative, executive, and judicial powers of government in separate bodies.
  • The three branches are divided into executive legislative, and judicial and they all were established by the constitution.
  • What’s the difference between Federalists and Anti-Federalists?
  • Anti-Federalists believe the states should hold more power.
  • Federalists are for a strong central government and believe they should have most of the power.
  • The Anti-Federalists believe this because they do not want abused power like what happened in Great Britain.
  • They came up with a list of basic rights called the Bill of Rights.
  • How did the two groups come to an agreement?
  • Well, the Anti-Federalists wanted a written document that would guarantee their basic human rights.
  • This was the start of the ratification of the US Constitution.
