What is the Constitution?

The Constitution says how the government works. It creates the President. It creates the Congress. It creates the Supreme Court.

slide6

The Constitution sets up the government.

  • The government is split into three parts or branches.
  • One branch is the Congress. The Congress makes laws. The people elect the members of Congress.
  • The next branch is the President. The President enforces the laws.
  • The last branch is the Courts. The courts decide what the law means when there are questions.
  • All of the parts have to work together. Just like the Framers agreed on the Constitution, the parts have to agree on the laws. No part has too much power. The power is shared. This helps protect the people.
