Playing games to learn?

Our Courts is a web-based education project designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy.

Learning by doing – or by playing games

Student activity

  1. Two students play each game using one computer.
  2. Write an article on your blog where you both answer the following questions: Did you learn anything? Where you able to answer the questions without looking up facts? How would you rate the three different games? How would you describe the process? Was it difficult to understand the games? Give your personal opinion – should students be able to play games like this in class?

Lesson plans are available for teachers too!
