The 3 branches of government under the constitution are like volleyball!! By: Mackenzie Nunn The Constitution is like the rules because the Constitution sets the rules of the government and the rules state what you can and can’t do in volleyball. The people are like the viewers because the people have a say in the government and the viewers have a say if they think there was a bad call. The executive branch is like the up ref because the executive branch carries out the law and the up ref carries out the rules. The legislative branch is like the president of the volleyball association because the legislative branch makes the laws and the head of the association makes the rules. The judicial branch is like the line judges because the judicial branch states if someone did something wrong and the line judges states if the play is over. The president is like the coach because the president runs the country and the coach runs the team. The Congress is like the team because the congress works together to make laws and the team works together to win the game. The supreme court is like the down ref because the supreme court has the final say in a case like the down ref has the final say in who gets the point. Checks and Balances is like the players because each branch of government has power of the other one and each player has more power than another player. Separation of Powers is like the positions because separation of powers divides into 3 branches and the players are divided into different positions. The constitutional convention is like the game because the constitutional convention is when everyone met to discuss what became a law and the game is where the teams meet up to play. James Madison is like the TASO president because James Madison wrote the constitution and the TASO president wrote the rules. George Washington is like the scouters because when George Washington was commander of the army he had to bring men into the army and the scouters bring players into there schools. The Great Compromise is like the end of the game because the Great Compromise is when everyone came together and the end of the game is when both teams come together and high five. The Articles of Confederation are like bad calls because no one really liked the Articles of Confederation and no one likes bad calls.
