Civil Rights Court Cases
During the civil rights movement, groundbreaking court cases took place that made racial discrimination illegal in areas of employment, marriage, housing, and voting. In this Court Cases worksheet, students read descriptions of five landmark decisions: Brown vs. Board of Education, Loving vs. Virginia, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. They then match each to their correct name. Designed for a year six social studies curriculum, this Civil Rights Court Cases worksheets incorporates well into a lesson on civics.
