FC: American Government By Jill
1: There are three branches of government. They each depend on one another. By creating three branches, our government has checks and balances to ensure that one branch doesn't get too much power.
2: The Executive Branch is lead by the United States President. He works in the white house and has the power of veto over the legislative branch
3: The Judicial branch interprets the laws and makes sure they are constitutional.
4: The Legislative Branch makes the laws.
5: The writers of the Constitution were very smart! Thanks to them, our government is strong.
