Storyboard Text

  • Philadelphia
  • gross! It's hot and it smells horrible out here. These mosquitoes are eating me alive. I wish I could go inside , but I think I see someone in there.
  • I think all states should have equal votes in government.
  • new jersey vs virginia plan
  • I think the votes should be based off of population.
  • So everyone how do we want to do the votes? remember, We want the government and states to have equal power.
  • The Great Compromise
  • We should have one house where states have equal votes and one house were its based on population.
  • Good idea Roger!! I'll write that down
  • The summer in Philadelphia was hot and smelled really bad. And there is a secret convention in the house.
  • population and slaves
  • No. We treat them as property so they should be counted as just that.
  • Should slaves be counted in the population?
  • Small states wanted all the states to have equal votes in government.This is called the New Jersey plan, but big states wanted it to be based off population.
  • 3/5 compromise
  • fine Gorge.
  • What if we count slaves as 3/5 of a person
  • OK. I'll add that.
  • It gives the government too much power!
  • After arguing, Roger came up with The Great compromise where one house is based on population, and in the other house all the state have equal votes. Each state has two Representative in each house. James adds it to the constitution.
  • anti federalist vs federalist
  • We'll add a bill of rights so, the government isn't too powerful.
  • Does everyone agree with the constitution?
  • The delegates discuss whether slaves should be counted as population or property.
  • They are people too. They should be counted in the population.
  • the delegates come up with the 3/5 compromise were slaves are counted as 60% of a person when counting the population.
  • James, write that down.
  • federalist wanted a strong central government while the anti federalists thought it gave the government too much power. They solved the issue with a bill of rights.
