guides students through events culminating with the completion of the Constitution in September 1787. The presentation opens with a discussion on why the Constitution was needed in the first place (Shays' Rebellion, economic issues, weak central government, issues with foreign powers). Students will explore the different personalities at the Constitutional Convention (Benjamin Franklin, George Washington), and will take special note of who was absent (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry). From there, students will examine the differences between the New Jersey Plan and the Virginia Plan, the various aspects of the final compromise, and then consider next steps (state ratification). The presentation closes with a picture of the chair occupied by Benjamin Franklin during the Convention and a discussion of whether the sun depicted on the neck of the chair represents a rising Sun or a setting Sun.
The presentation uses a Calibri font and includes custom animation.
