3 Branches of Government

As part of our social studies standards, 
we have to look at the Constitution of the United States.
With Constitution Day coming up, we are going to take some time to look at
this national document a little closer.

STUDENTS:  Our government is divided into 3 different branches.  These branches make sure all the jobs are covered so our country can operate smoothly. One of the jobs of the Constitution is to tell our nation's leaders what their job description is.  You are going to check out these websites to discover what each branch's job is.
As you search these websites, be sure to write down on your graphic organizer the jobs each branch has.

Branch #1 - Executive Branch



Branch #2 - Legislative Branch


Branch #3 - Judicial Branch


The 3 Branches of Government Review - Which branch does what?



Checks and Balances - How do these branches help each other?



What was one WOW fact you learned about the branches of government?
