While continuing our studies of the amendments and rights of Americans, I came across a useful site, focusing on the Judicial Branch, called Courts in the Classroom. A collaboration of the Judicial Branch of California and the Constitutional Rights Foundation, the site features a series of animated comic slideshows that help kids understand such topics as free speech; what due process means; what judges and courts do; checks and balances, privacy issues (search and seizure), and explanations of several Supreme Court landmark cases. Below each slideshow is a glossary section with words and definitions pertaining to the topic you're watching.

It's been interesting reviewing these with my kids, and it's led to some good discussions. Could make a good resource for a homeschool civics or debate co-op class.
