Storyboard Text

  • Bigger States (Virginia, Pennsylvania, etc.)
  • It wouldn't be fair if states like Rhode Island had the same representation as Virgina
  • Representation on voting should depend on the population of the state.
  • That's not fair!
  • Smaller States (Rhode Island, Georgia, etc.)
  • We are all people and we all deserve equal representation. Just because a state is bigger, it doesn't make them better!
  • That's Right!
  • The Outcome
  • Since no one can agree, we will make a Compromise. Each state will have 2 senates and depending on your states population is how many House of Representatives your state will have to vote in Congress.
  • That might work...
  • We believe that slaves shouldn't be counted as part of the population of a state because they aren't technically people and southern states have a lot more.
  • Northern States (Not a lot of Slaves)
  • It's not fair to the northern states!
  • That's unreasonable!
  • Southern States (lots of Slaves)
  • If they aren't treated like people, they shouldn't be counted as one!
  • Slaves should be part of a states population because they can be as much as half of the states population! If you don't have as many slaves that's your problem.
  • 3/5th Compromise
  • Maybe
  • We must make a Compromise. How about for every slave you have in your state they are worth 3/5 of a person in terms of your states population.
  • I guess we could try that.
