Storyboard Text

  • Article 1: The Legislative Branch
  • We are the legislative branch and we make up the Congress.
  • Article 2: The Executive Branch
  • We are the executive branch and we are the president,vice president, and executive officials.
  • Article 3: The Judicial Branch
  • We are the judicial branch and we are the Supreme court and lower federal courts
  • The main function of Congress is to make laws. Most laws begin as bills, proposals for new laws. The legislative Branch is two chambers, or bicameral. The two chambers are the Senate and the House of Representatives.
  • Article 4: Full Faith and Credit
  • We are state representatives and we must accept legal documents of other states.
  • Under the Constitution, the president and the rest of the executive branch must "take care that the laws be faithfully executed." The president proposes legislation. Many of the other officials help carry out executive duties too.
  • Article 5: Amending the Constitution
  • We want to amend the Constitution but keep the government long lasting and stable.
  • The job of the judicial branch is to interpret the Constitution, the "supreme Law of the Land."The supreme Court and lower federal courts make up the federal court system. A key authority exercised by the Supreme Court is judicial review, the power to review an action of legislative or executive branch and declare it unconstitutional.
  • Federalism
  • We are state representatives and we must divide our powers.
  • The states must give "full faith and Credit" to the laws and decisions of other states. This means that the states must accept the legal documents and actions of other states. States also have certain responsibilities for each other.
  • The framers knew that the Constitution would have to change over time to remain relevant and useful to succeeding generations. The framers wanted to keep the government long lasting and stable, though, so they made changing the Constitution difficult.
  • The constitution also establishes the principle of federalism, the division of power between the federal and state governments. Both the federal and state governments have some exclusive powers of their own, while sharing others.
