U.S. Constitutional Convention Lesson

This is a great lesson on the U.S. Constitutional Convention and the compromises (Virginia Plan, New Jersey Plan, The Great Compromise, 3/5th Compromise, and The Electoral College) that came out of it.

The lesson includes a Charlie Brown Episode that does a great job of showing the overall Constitutional Convention. Episode is not included in the PowerPoint for copyright purposes. Episode can be found online (DailyMotion Website) or DVD/Episode can be purchased on Amazon or Walmart.

Then there is a graphic organizer with three readings that also include an audio option for students to work on and dig deeper into the compromises. The answer key is included in the presentation.

Finally, there is a writing reflection assessment for the students to complete. There is a choice for core/on-level students that includes sentence stems. Or a Pre-AP option as well. This whole lesson should take 2-3 days (45 minute class periods). All you need to do is download presentation and print copies for your class! Enjoy!!!
