Storyboard Text

  • We the larger states believe there should be proportional representation and two houses. We believe this because we want more representation because we have more people.
  • Virginia Plan's Side
  • New Jersey Plan's Side
  • We the smaller states believe there should be equal representation and one house. We believe this because we have less people so we won't have as big of a say as the large states.
  • Deal
  • We will make an agreement. There will be 2 houses (bicameral legislature), the Senate and the House of Representatives. Then both sides can have their way! This is called the Great Compromise!
  • Fine
  • Southern States
  • We southern states think that our slaves should count toward our population. We think this because slaves take up a lot of space in our states and they should count to our population.
  • We northern states think that slaves should not be counted toward the population. We think this because slaves are considered property not people.
  • Northern Sates
  • Well we don't want the slaves to be taxed because you still consider them property.
  • Ugh... another compromise.
  • Well, if the slaves count toward their population then they should be taxed because they are people.
  • The Three Fifths Compromise: 3/5 of slaves in a state will count towards the states population and they will be taxed.
  • Deal!
  • Let's do it!
  • Alright, can we write this constitution?
