Articles of Confederation
The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union came into effect on March 1, 1781, and was the nation’s first constitution.
March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1836
James Madison is known as the Father of the Constitution because of his pivotal role in the document’s drafting as well as its ratification.
Madison also drafted the first 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights. You can download our free Bill of Rights coloring pages to learn about them too.
The Constitution established the office of The President of the United States but of the 39 signers, only two were or would eventually serve as president.
George Washington, the first, was president at the time of the signing, while James Madison would go on to serve as the fourth president of the United States.
Only six men signed both the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution 11 years later: George Clymer, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Morris, George Read, Roger Sherman, and James Wilson. Download our free Benjamin Franklin coloring pages.
Written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, the United States Constitution is the world’s longest surviving written charter of government. See our free government worksheets.
The first three words of the Constitution read “We The People.” Meaning the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens.
The U.S. Federal Government is composed of three distinct branches. The Adventures of Chloe and Chris is a great read aloud when discussing the three branches of government.
The Judicial Branch interprets the meaning of laws, applies laws to individual cases, and decides if laws violate the Constitution.
It is comprised of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. The Supreme Court Building is located at One First Street, NE, in Washington, DC.
The legislative branch is made up of the House and Senate, known collectively as the Congress. It is located in the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, DC.
Among other powers, the legislative branch makes all laws, declares war, regulates interstate and foreign commerce, and controls taxing and spending policies.
The Executive Branch carries out and enforces laws. It is located in the White House, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C.
It includes the president, vice president, the Cabinet, executive departments, independent agencies, and other boards, commissions, and committees.
