Product Description
Developed for AP US History students reviewing for the AP exam, this matching game helps students review some of our nation's most important Supreme Court cases including Marbury vs. Madison, Brown v. Board of Education, and Roe v. Wade. Also included are cases important in the context of different movements/eras, like Munn v. Illinois, the Insular cases, and Mueller v. Oregon.

I've taken the game next level by asking students to complete tasks AFTER properly matching the cases. Examples include making connections to other time periods, placing the case(s) in context, brainstorming synthesis ideas, and identifying cause and effect. In this way, students will review content well beyond the actual case on the matching card.

While created for APUSH, this game also has a place in general ed US History, Government courses, and AP Government.

Copy the cards on card stock, laminate, and cut. Provide students with one stack of cases, and one stack of descriptions/tasks to match up.

This could also be used as assessment.
