This worksheet on the writing of America's Constitution includes a one page reading on the major compromises of the Constitutional Convention, specifically the Great Compromise and Three-fifth's Compromise.
The article also explains the background of the US Constitution, the Virginia Plan, New Jersey Plan, and how the issues were resolved.
Following the reading, students complete a set of 9 analysis questions to gauge their understanding. An answer key for this is provided.
This is an excellent resource to use in a Civics, Government, or US History classroom or for Constitution Day!
An editable Google Docs version and completed answer key are both included for your convenience!
