The debate over how to organize Congress can be challenging to teach students. This activity is designed to help students think about what they know about the debate in a new way.
After learning about the debate over Congress at the Constitutional Convention, students will use critical thinking to identify visual representations of the New Jersey and Virginia Plans. They will explain their answers, and create their own visual representation of the outcome: the Great Compromise. This activity is a fantastic way for students to think concretely about a topic that can be difficult for students to grasp. Key is included.
