US Government

The U.S. Constitution establishes a federal government, protects the rights of citizens, and provides general rules that government must follow.  The power of the federal government is separated into three branches, and checks and balances are in place to balance the power between them.  The amendment process enables our Constitution to adapt to a constantly changing society.

Essential Questions for this unit:
1. How is the U.S. Constitution a document of balance, flexibility, and compromise?
2. Do I have rights? Do I have responsibilities?
3. How is the U.S. Constitution active in our lives today?
