Bookmark this site now! It’s a fun, interactive gateway into the realm of Civics! The brainchild of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, this free education project teaches students about civics through engaging computer games in which the student “wins” by mastering knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and essential foundational principles of the nation.

From the home page, select the large green “teach” image, then select “all games” on the next page. Some of the featured games include: 

  • Do I Have a Right? – Run your own firm of lawyers who specialize in constitutional law or the Bill of Rights.
  • Argument Wars – Put your lawyering skills to the test by arguing real Supreme Court cases.
  • LawCraft – Become a virtual legislator and try to meet the needs of your constituents. Find out what members of Congress must do to prepare, write, pass, and enact laws.
  • Executive Command – Find out what it’s like to be a U.S. President over a 4-year term of office.

Also, play games that teach about immigration, citizenship, voting and more.

In addition to the multi-media games and web quests, you’ll find lesson plans and handouts for teachers and parents that go with the games to enhance learning.
