Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I am Rodger Sherman.
  • Grettings, I'm Benjamin Franklin
  • Hello, I am George Washington
  • Hi, I am James Madison
  • In 1787, delegates from all over the US, came to Philadelphia for the Constitutional Convention. The Convention stated in May and would end in September.
  • But it is so humid!
  • Close the windows! No one must know!
  • George Washington was the president of the convention. Benjamin Franklin was the wisest and oldest delegate. James Madison is called the Father of the Constitution. Lastly, Rodger Sherman help make lots of critical decisions.
  • How will the states be represented in the legislative branch?
  • The city of Philadelphia was not very clean, there was lots of trash in the streets so disease was rapid. Death of young people was common.
  • The New Jersey Plan! Your plan is not fair.
  • Your plan is not fair either! The Virginia Plan is the best.
  • There was also the problem of secrecy. George Washington wanted the Convention to be kept a secret. For that reason they had to keep the windows and doors of the Hall shut making the room very humid.
  • The first problem the delegates encountered while writing the Constitution was how the states should be represented in the legislative branch.
  • One idea was the Virginia Plan, which had 2 houses both had representation based off of population. This plan gave more power to big states. The next idea was the New Jersey Plan that had one house with equal representation. This gave more power to small states.
