Students can think of the structure of the United States government like a three-legged stool. Each leg supports the government as a whole. Without one of the legs, the stool would tip over! The Three Branches of the U.S. Government (or legs of the stool) are the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive. In this worksheet, students will identify the responsibilities, members, and powers of each branch.
