Storyboard Text

  • Oh my! Thank god Pericles helped them.
  • Did you know Athens, once, didn't let any citizens without property vote? They let them vote, later, though.
  • Actually, Thomas Hobbes wanted a government with unquestionable political power, not John Locke.
  • Ancient Greece also started to let not as wealthy people vote. Don't eat me!
  • Hey, did you know that before we where alive, we had senate members for life?
  • Yeah. They prevented lying to to the court to. Neigh!
  • What! Really? Well at least they made the Rule of Law. That helped make no one above the law.
  • We had to give them more rights. Apparently, we were "too" powerful.
  • Where I am sitting is a table from the house of Burgesses. The house of Burgesses was the first representative assembly in the English colonies in America. That's important because it was the first in the U.S!
  • Majesty, you had too to make the agreement. They were going to start a rebellion.
  • Why did you make the Magna Carta with those wealthy Barons?
  • I thought John Locke said that a government had to have unquestionable political power.
  • My teacher said John Locke's philosophy was that citizens could overthrow a bad government.
  • Below this deck of the Mayflower ship was where the Separatists, or Pilgrims, signed the Mayflower Compact.
  • Ooh! Wasn't it the first framework of government written and enacted in the U.S.A? That's pretty important.
  • Wow! Did you know that they made the Magna Carta so they could work together, for the general good of the colony?
  • STOP! You're gonna ruin the artifacts!
  • Where I am sitting is the desk that George Washington the Burgess sat. A Burgess is an elected representative of the settlers.
