Principles of the Constitution_McNamara

One of the principles of the Constitution we learned about this week was checks and balances, so I created this chart showing the checks that the "branches" of our federal government have on each other. Checks and balances are important because they prevent any one person from becoming too powerful and ruling over the entire government. This was particularly important to the Founding Fathers because they had seen what could happen when the government got too much control, and did not want that to repeat in their new country.
