Storyboard Text

  • Where is Rhode Island?
  • LOL
  • I say we go with the Virginia Plan!
  • An uprising led by Daniel Shay, Shay's rebellion, was a spark on the thought of a better constitution was in place when 1500 farmers went to a military arsenal in protest of the debts among them.
  • No! The New Jersey Plan!
  • The Articles of Confederation had to be changed in order build a stronger government so each state was invited to do so, Rhode Island did not attend so only 55 delegates showed up in Philadelphia.
  • The Great Compromise!
  • One idea that was presented was the Virgina Plan. It was a plan made by James Madison that said that each state should have their representation based on the population.
  • The U.S. Constitution
  • The smaller states disagreed with this and came up with New Jersey Plan. This plan was in favor of the smaller states and said that each state should have equal representation and get one vote.
  • The agreement that became between the two plans was called the Great Compromise. It consisted of each state getting two senators and a the number of people in the house of representatives based on the population of the state.
  • The last problem was with the slaves adding to the population, the states with less slaves said don't add them but the ones with more said yes. They agreed on the 3/5 compromise meaning that every 3rd slave would count as part of the population.
