Identify how the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation led to the writing of the Constitution.
This comic strip goes from the Articles of The Confederation to the US Constitution. Including the Virginia Plan & New Jersey Plan. This breaks down the major ideas surrounding the Constitution. Examples included.
Students will identify the weaknesses of the government under the Articles of Confederation (i.e., Congress had no power to tax, to regulate trade, or to enforce its laws; the national government lacked a national court system [judicial branch] and central leadership [executive branch]; and changes to the Articles required unanimous consent of the 13 states).
