Storyboard Text

  • The New Jersey Plan is the better choice because it all depends on which states are for or against something. The population matters not, just the state itself.
  • The Virginia Plan is the obvious choice because the bigger states can have more of a voice. The representation depends on population.
  • The summer of 1787 in Philadelphia was a hard one. Mosquitoes and flies were everywhere and they bit people. It was scorching hot. But worst of all, nobody knew anything about proper sanitation, except Thomas Jefferson. He was the only person who took baths.
  • The NJ Plan was the one with which most of the small states agreed, because it was more in favor of them. According to the New Jersey Plan, each state had an equal number of representatives.

  • The Great Compromise made it so that the states representation was based on population in the House of Representatives, but in the Senate all the states had equal representation. It was presented by Roger Sherman.
  • I present to you, the Great Compromise. It is fair for everyone.

  • The Three-Fifths Compromise, proposed by Roger Sherman and James Wilson, made slaves count as 3/5 of a person towards representation and population.
