Mayhem in Missouri

As you begin to compare the structure of the Missouri Constitution to the United States Constitution, you realize the words are disappearing from the page. As you scan the page, desperate to learn new information, your screen begins to glow. Before you realize what has happened, you and a group of your friends are pulled through your Chromebook, pulled back in time to 1820 during the Missouri Compromise debates in the House of Representatives. The representatives are determining whether or not Missouri should enter the Union as a slave state or a free state, and all eyes are on Henry Clay, known as the Great Compromiser. Clay can be seen ruffling through a stack of papers on his desk and seems nervous, almost confused. You and your friends realize what is happening - rush to Representative Clay to offer your help. You noticed a locked box on his desk with a note that says, "Keys to Missouri." There are four locks that you must open! You must prevent Mayhem in Missouri!
