Educator Resources for Court Quest
Court Quest is a fun and interactive game about the federal and state court systems and the appeals process. As you navigate around the country, you’ll encounter citizens who need assistance getting their cases to the correct court. Read each person’s case and analyze the details carefully so you can direct the citizen to the right court. If the citizen wins the case, you’re done! If the citizen loses the case and needs to appeal, you are responsible for directing him or her to the next highest court. Good luck!
