Here, iCivics presents a judicial variation of the classic card game "Go Fish!" Students use a write-on courtroom game board and play with cards that show the people involved in a trial--such as judges, court staff, attorneys, and litigants--and each of their roles. By trying to match people and roles to make pairs, students learn what trial participants do both in court and out of court.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to...

  • Identify the roles of trial participants.
  • Distinguish between in-court duties and out-of-court duties.
  • Distinguish between civil and criminal trials
