  • Hello, I'm George Washington, and I want to know about the judicial branch of government. Whats this on the wall?
  • The Judicial Branch
  • THE JUDICIAL BRANCH  The judicial branch is one out of three branches. For the federal judicial branch, there are 9 justices or judges. For the state judicial branch, there are 7 justices, and for the local judicial branch, there are 5 justices. The federal judicial branch stays until they retire or die, the state judges are limited to 4 years, and the limit for local judges change a lot. The responsibilities for these judges are to decide consequences for criminals or law breakers. The federal judges work at the U.S. Supreme Court, the state judges work at the State Supreme Court, and local judges work at their city's Metro Hall.
  • The legislative branch
  • Uh oh! Its raining! Get inside! Maybe we can learn about the other two branches.
  • Cool!
  • The legislative branch helps make laws for the community. The federal legislative branch is split into two parts; The senate and the house of representatives. The federal senate serves for 6 year terms, but the house of representatives serve to a limit of 2 years, and work in the U.S. capitol building. The state's representitives make up the house of represintives, and it depends on the population of how many go.  
  • Well, what about the last one?  It's getting dark. Lets go inside and find out.
  • The executive branch
  • The executive branch is the branch that the president works at.  The state executive branch is ran by a governor (limit is 8 years total). A city or town is ran by a mayor (limit is 12 years). Now that you know everything, you can be president. Everyone voted for you! You are our first ever president!
  • I am? This is great!
