• Activity 1: Using the following website, Three-fifths Clause, students will read through the Three-Fifths Compromise, found in the Constitution under Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3. Another resource follows: The Three Fifths Compromise. This resource outlines the impact of the Three-Fifths Compromise. After the students have researched primary documents and gained a basic understanding of the Three-Fifths Compromise, they will reflect on the perspectives, from both sides – the government and the slaves – and they will write a journal entry based on that reflection. It should be two to three paragraphs in length.
