Articles I, II and III describe the legislative, executive , and judicial of the government respectively.

The Fourth article explains the relationship of the states to one another and to the federal government.

The Fifth article explains the amendment process .

Article VI deals with general ideas the national debt, the authority of the Constitution, and office holding.

The last article tells how the Constitution is to be ratified.
