National Archives Museum

Thursday, May 21, 2020 - 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. EST

Register for this or any of our upcoming programs for students and families.

This 45-minute program geared toward grades 7-12 will be presented by the National Archives in Washington, DC.

How does the Constitution check and balance power? During this program students will analyze primary sources to examine the powers of the Federal Government and discover how the Constitution created a stronger central government compared to the Articles of Confederation. They will also discover how the Constitution checks and balances power between the three branches of government and between the Federal Government and state governments.

This program is part of our spring series of online, interactive-learning programs for students and families. Programs are available for preschool through 12th grade, and are scheduled weekly through the end of May. All programs, offered via a web link in partnership with the Presidential Primary Sources Project, will take place at 2pm ET / 1 pm CT / 12 pm MT / 11 am PT.
