  • House of Representatives and Senate vote
  • Bill is introduced in Congress
  • Concepts of Government (for 5th graders)
  • Special Committee reads and edits the bill
  • How are laws made?
  • President signs the bill, making it a law
  • By Kevin NguyenPeriod 3 AP GOV
  • Bill is introduced to Congress by a Congress member
  • Committee that specializes in the bill's subject edits it because they are the ones with the most experience with the subject
  • Democracy
  • What counts as reckless?
  • This bill will make reckless horse riding illegal!
  • Ah, he's on to something. Transfer this to the committee of Operational Horse Safety
  • Going over 30 paces a minute will count as reckless
  • President signs the bill into law
  • Republic
  • Nay!
  • House of Representatives and Senate vote so 'The People' have a say in the law
  • If I like the bill and sign it, it becomes a law
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • If I don't like the bill, I can veto it which means I reject the bill so it has to go back to congress to be edited to my liking. Or if 2/3 of congress like it, they can override my veto and the bill still becomes a law. This prevents a abusive President
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • Democracy vs. Republic
  • - Two different forms of government which help represent 'The People"
  • - "The People" are citizens like me and you. - Both forms of government are aimed to share our thoughts and voices within the government.
  • Aye!
  • For example, there are 6 people who live in a town. They are deciding whether to put a stop sign on a street. 4 vote yes, 2 vote no. This means the stop sign will be installed on the street. "The People" of the town vote and decide things directly. This can cause slower actions from the government and uneducated individuals can still vote but also is the most accurate way to represent "The People"
  • Democracy's involve decisions in the government made directly by the people. There essentially is no middle man.
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • Nay!
  • Nay!
  • This is the same story as last time with the stop sign, but now there are only three people who vote. "The People" vote one person to represent them in voting. 2 elected officials vote yes, 1 votes no so the stop sign will be installed. This can cause less accuracy when representing "The People" but saves a lot of time and only allows educated people to truly make an impact.
  • Republic's involve decisions in the government made by elected officials. These officials are chosen by a vote from "The People". The elected officials are the middle men.
  • Aye!
  • Aye!
  • Nay!
