My favorite way to teach my kids was to read “real” books (not textbooks). Real books bring a subject to life, so here are real books you can use with your kids as you teach them about the three branches of government. Click on any book image to read more about that resource.

The Executive Branch of Government is the one who “executes” the laws. In the national government, this begins with our President. At the state level, this is usually the Governor; while the Mayor is generally the Executive member of a city.
