The Executive Branch

The President often gets all the credit for heading up this branch of government, but in reality it’s more than just him.  The Vice-President, the Cabinet, and all the Executive Agencies also contribute to making this third of the Federal Government strong.

This Prezi by “Beth” explains the general structure of the Executive Branch of the United States government. I wish I knew who she was to give her proper credit, but I appreciate her, just the same.

Critical Questions: 

1. Just how much power does the President have?

2. If the President is healthy, what the heck does the VP do all day?

3. What role does the Cabinet play in advising the President’s policies?

4. Which are the critical agencies in the government, and how did they come to be? How do they affect us personally?

Answer the questions before we start our inquiry, and we’ll compare our knowledge before and after we take a good solid look into this branch of government.
