This worksheet on the Constitutional Convention includes a one page reading on the major compromises of the Constitutional Convention, specifically the Great Compromise and Three-fifth's Compromise. It also explains the background, Virginia Plan, New Jersey Plan, and how the issues were resolved. Great to use on Constitution Day!
Following the reading, students complete a set of 9 comprehension questions to gauge their understanding. An answer key for this is provided. This is an excellent homework or in-class activity to provide background before covering the US Constitution.
An editable Google Docs version
