If you are about to teach the 3 branches this would be a great warm-up activity as you teach the responsibilities of each branch of US government. If you've already taught this concept, pulling this song up on the smart board and having your kiddos sing along, would be a great review before state testing starts.

Checks and Balances is to keep one branch of government from overpowering the others. Each branch is restrained by the other two in some way. The Executive can nominate judges and veto congressional legislation. The Legislative confirms judges, controls the budget, can pass laws over president's veto, and impeach the president. Judicial can declare laws and presidential acts as unconstitutional. I choose this photo because it is a good picture to remember what checks and balances represents.
