The United States Constitution came into existence after four months of political wrangling during the hot Philadelphia summer of 1787. The Federalists and Anti-Federalists could agree on few things, other than the crucial nature of their work.
This History and US Government worksheet consists of three sections, all designed to challenge and improve your students' understanding of the Constitutional Convention: (1) Identification questions about the role played by tthe convention's main personalities; (2) True/False questions that will help clarify differences between the Virginia Plan and the New Jersey Plan; and (3) short answer questions regarding slavery, trade and centralized power - three issues that threatened to derail the convention.
This worksheet is excellent as a stand-alone class activity, and it can also be used as a homework assignment or test review.
