A LONG time ago, I created Montessori-style Supreme Court Justice cards that could be used to play matching or memory style games. I recently updated those cards to include all the most recent Justices, since there have been 3 replacements since I created the original set. To go along with those cards and test knowledge in a more straight forward manner, I recently created these U.S. Supreme Court Justice matching worksheets.
I’ll admit that when I was a kid…..okay, when I was a fully grown adult, there was a time when I knew practically none of the Justices. However, as I’ve grown into adulthood, I’ve learned how important these 9 individuals are to the fate of our democratic republic. While it is not crucial that my elementary-aged children be able to identify these 9 Justices, I want them to know how important the Supreme Court is. As they grow, I want them to become familiar with the faces of these 9 important individuals.
Personally, I think the cards are more fun. However as a homeschooling mom using a charter school, from time to time I need to show that my kids are learning. While I normally don’t love worksheets, they make great leaning samples. Since they don’t involve any writing, these are the sort of worksheets my kids love to do. They are quick, easy, and get the job done.
Using these matching worksheets, kids can show that they have internalized the information that the Montessori-style cards helped them practice. I have included versions in which the child simply needs to match the picture to the name as well as ones that use simple identifying descriptions. For those that want to save color ink, I’ve created black and white versions of the ones with pictures.
For those like me who get the Justices mixed up from time to time, I also created an answer key. I hope these free worksheets are helpful to your family!
