This is an animated power point presentation highlighting the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention, a meeting of the 13 delegates who created the US Constitution. The presentation contains 29 colorful slides and are all editable so you may adjust those to your specific needs.
The presentation covers how the delegates approached the meeting, reviews the plans submitted, plans submitted, including the Virginia Plan, created by James Madison, the documents that influenced the writing, the key issues of the day, and the compromises the delegates used to get the Constitution adopted.
I have included a picture from the library of Congress with an identification key of all the signers of the document. The presentation concludes with a brief presentation on James Madison who is considered the "Father of the Constitution.
