1. What is the Constitution?
The Constitution is the "Supreme Law of the Land" and shows the rules for government and explains its jobs in eight parts. The first is the Preamble, which says the reason why the Constitution was created. The second through fourth is about the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches in that order. The next is about state powers and limits, as well as making new states. Article 5 says the Constitution can be amended or changed. The sixth Article mentions that the Constitution is the highest law and unless amended, cannot be gone against. The last Article states that for it to go into effect nine states must approve it. Finally, the last part is for amendments that have been made.
