Great way to lead into teaching the 3/5 Compromise at the Constitutional Convention. This worksheet will engage the kids to take part in a whole class debate in trying to come up with a solution about Slaves and Representation in the House at the Constitutional Convention. It also includes a short Cloze Note assignment that they can do independently or with a partner.
*This will teach your students on how to come up with solutions or compromises. That sometimes you must give a little to get.
