This PowerPoint will cover the Constitutional Convention, the Virginia Plan, the New Jersey Plan, the Great Compromise and the Three-Fifths Compromise. Also there is a chart for students to fill out while you go through the slideshow.
These graphic organizers and diagrams are so helpful in teaching students the background and goals of the 3/5 compromise made during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Students research and analyze the compromises - the three fifths compromise and the compromise on the slave trade. I love seeing their "aha" moments during this lesson! Great for middle school Social Studies.
