The Supreme Court: Lesson Plans and Resources

Americans have looked to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) as the moral conscience of the nation since it was established by the founding fathers in Article III of the U.S. Constitution in 1789. Since then, it has interpreted thousands of cases and released opinions on nearly a thousand cases in the last 10 years alone. Whether you’re looking to introduce elementary students to SCOTUS, or discussing the impact of civil rights cases such as Brown v Board of Education with middle and high school students, Share My Lesson has tailored resources to ensure your students leave your classroom equipped with a knowledge of civics and government to critically think about what happens in government.
