Product Description
This assignment includes differentiated primary sources from the Code of Hammurabi and Ancient Hebrew law. I have meticulously modified each primary source to accommodate for different reading levels. One set of handouts are for middle school level readers while the other set is for high school level readers. The academic vocabulary is underlined and the content vocabulary is in bold. Following each set of primary sources are 4 modern day legal scenarios which require students to determine how these modern civil and criminal cases would be decided in the ancient world.
