The Judicial Branch has an important responsibility . They make decisions if the laws made by congress agree with the constitution. The President chooses one Supreme Court Justice to be the leader.
The nine Justices sit at a raised table called a bench. All nine Justices listen to each case brought to the court while lawyers tell both side of the issue.

Democracy , Goverment, and Bill of Rights By:Sierra Steinvurzel
A government is an organization that directs the actions of a national state or community. A government has the authority and power to make, carry out and enforce laws. The federal powers and state powers have many jobs to keep the government running well. The federal powers job is to make treaties with other nations, provide needs for national defence, collect taxes on goods from other countries, and print the money. A state power’s job is to vote on constitutional amendments, decide on voting requirements, they also run the elections.
One important role that the US government has is to protect individual rights. There are many rights people should have, although not everyone has freedom. People have the freedom to believe in what he or she wants to believe in. We, in the United States have the freedom to hold meetings and express our opinions. It is your responsibility to vote. As you see the rights of one person is very important.
The constitution made a really important difference in our life. The constitution is a document that describes the authority and power of a government. The constitution states that the United States government was formed by the people and that its power comes from the people as well. Many nations with a constitution are a democracy, the United States is a democracy. The constitution made the United States a better place.

The Legislative Branch By:Elsa Trombetta
The Legislative Branch has many important, difficult jobs that benefit a tremendous amount of people. The Legislative Branch has the most power out of everyone in the government. For example, only the Legislative Branch can declare war, borrow money, print currency, or establish taxes that adults need to pay. Men and women are elected to Congress so they can represent each state, and they make the Legislative Branch. They are responsible for passing laws so that the nation can run smoothly and fairly.
Some of the laws are for the rights of individuals and others are for common goods. For example, they make sure that there is land for national parks and that there is clean air and water. There is over 500 people in Congress. Congress has 2 different parts, The Senate and the House of Representatives. The Senate is made up of 100 people and the House of Representatives is made up of 435 voting members that each have a 2 year term. The government and the Legislative branch serve a big role in our nations government.
