Storyboard Text

  • I heard about it too! Pericles didn't believe that you needed property or wealth to take role in the government.
  • We're finally able to have a role in the government!
  • Hello senator! How is your day?
  • Great! The Senate just created the rule of law, suggesting that everyone is treated equally and nobody is above the law. This is how our government should be.
  • The Magna Carta and the English bill of Rights have been created! These will limit the power of the king and grant more power to Parliament. King John has been abusing power, so the barons decided to step up for their rights.
  • That's great! Parliament will be a much better way to govern our society.
  • That may be good Thomas Hobbes, but we should have the consent of the citizens before decisions are made.
  • Hello, John Locke! I've just been thinking, we should have a strong government to ensure the security of all citizens.
  • We just created a document that will be the base of our government, It's called the Mayflower Compact!
  • This will be great for our new home! We will have an organized society here!
  • Fine, thank you. The first representative assembly in the English colonies has been created! It's called the House of Burgesses. It's run by the Burgesses's, or the elected representatives.
  • Hello fellow member of the lower house, or the assembly. How are you doing?
