The Great Compromise took the ideas of the Virginia Plan (large state plan) and the New Jersey Plan (small state plan) and created a two house legislature (bi-cameral). The Senate would be made up of equal number of senators from each state, selected by the state legislatures. The House of Representatives would be elected by the people in each district and state, and based upon population representation. The more people living in the state, the more representatives the state would have. But even small states would be equally represented with the large states in the Senate. A bill would have to be approved by both houses before it became law. And only the House (the most representative of the people) could initiate money bills.

The Great Compromise was significant in that it established how our legislature is set up to this day. Originally it was intended to be one body, but large states like Virginia wanted representation based on population, whereas smaller states like New Jersey wanted representation based on the same number of delegates, regardless of population. The Great Compromise proposed having both, setting up our legislative bodies.
The Constitution of the United States provides for a bicameral legislative body to ensure an equality of representation among the states. If there was just a single legislative body, in the interest of freedom and sovereignty of the states that legislative body would be elected according to population and a state with more people than another will elect more representative to the Congress. This gave the smaller states a reasonable concern and during the Constitutional Convention where the Constitution was written, there were many suggestions as to how to appease the smaller states but it was ultimately the "great compromise" also known as the Connecticut compromise where an agreement was reached and the bicameral legislative bodies of both the House of Representatives and Senators became what is now called Congress.
