Court Quest: Updated for 2020

APRIL 06, 2020

When it comes to learning, students love to be in the driver’s seat. In our newly updated Court Quest, students take the wheel of the Justice Express and help their passengers navigate the American judicial system. On their journey, they’ll learn about the structures and jurisdictions of the nation's state and federal court systems.
 
In this new release of Court Quest, we’ve improved the player experience in a lot of ways, in partnership with the Leonore Annenberg Institute for Civics at the Annenberg Public Policy Center. Play the game to see:

  • A new, more diverse cast of characters that better reflect our nation’s population.
  • New cases with increased relevance for students from all demographics and backgrounds.
  • Improved accessibility for English Language Learners and struggling native-English readers, including a Spanish version of the game, English voice over, and an embedded glossary.       

Explore all the updates in Court Quest and then assign the game to your students. And remember you can assign any of the other games that are available for free from iCivics to keep kids engaged and learning at home.
