Product Description
AP Government: Supreme Court Simulation
- AP Objectives
- Critical thinking
- Application of judicial concepts and stare decisis

Rules and Regulations: In Fantasy Football, you make your ideal team with the best players in the NFL. In Fantasy Supreme Court, you are making your ideal bench. Using your knowledge of judicial review, precedent cases, and the judges themselves make your ideal Supreme Court.

The Draft: You will pick 5 justices to serve on your court. Once a judge has been picked 5 times, they are out of the running. Justices will be chosen through a rotation, but the order of that rotation is up to the teacher.

The Games: Your bench will be presented with random court cases that have been decided. Based on your judges, you have to decide the case and explain your reasoning in writing. Use your knowledge of judicial review, precedent cases, and the judges to justify your opinion. If your decision was historically upheld by the Supreme Court, you win! If your decision was overruled, then you lose. At the end, the bench with the most wins is the Super Bowl Champion!
