About This Lesson

The president of the United States is among the most powerful political figures in the world. In the international realm, the president speaks for the country and is the symbol of America. At home, the president suggests the policy agenda for Congress and is the leader of his or her political party. Americans look to the president for leadership, while at the same time fearing the concentration of political power in the executive branch. Each of these lessons introduces students to the executive branch and explore the ways that checks and balances limit presidential power. For grades 4–12.
