Product Description
This is a highly animated, editable power point presentation that presents a point by point analysis on the strengths and weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and how its implementation lead to the Shays' Rebellion which in turn lead to the eventual Constitutional Convention.

The Articles of Confederation was written in 1777 by John Dickinson, a PA statesman and was accepted by Congress in 1781 and was considered the first national constitution. The fear of having too much power in one person’s hands reflects the experiences the colonies had under a monarchy. In the Articles the state governments limited the power of the national Congress.

In reality, the Articles were inadequate once they were tested, as evidenced in Shay's Rebellion. This rebellion prompted national leaders to meet to create a stronger central government that eventually became the United States Constitution.

A Constitutional Convention was called to "re-do" the Articles of Confederation but the plan was scrapped and the process to establish a working government began. After 16 weeks of arguments, the new United States Constitution was born creating a new functioning government. And that's the government that we still have today!
