Product Description

This resource is a Google Form linked to an interactive gallery on 4 cases that describes the courts, business, and labor regulations from 1895 to 1911 in the United States.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the federal government sought increased regulation of business practices. Some Supreme Court rulings supported these efforts, but in other rulings, the court sided with the corporations. Meanwhile, big business leaders resented the new regulations, feeling that they hurt their businesses and went against the principles of the free enterprise system. 

Students will analyze the 4 court cases in the interactive gallery. Students will read each case and classify the court’s decisions as for or against big business on the form. This activity has worked very well in pairs. This is an excellent enrichment activity. 

Students will learn about:

  • United States v. E.C. Knight Co. (1895)
  • United States v. Trans-Missouri Freight Association (1897)
  • Lochner v. New York (1905)
  • Standard Oil Company of New Jersey v. U.S.
