Product Description

The lesson starts with an initial activity in which students are in small groups and given three situations in which they would say how they would punish certain types of imaginary criminal events. Then the teacher introduces Hammurabi and students will read several laws created by Hammurabi (primary source) and determine whether each law was fair or not and give a reason why. Then students will go back into their original groups and determine how Hammurabi would have punished the scenarios given earlier in the class. You can then have small group or whole class discussions about the results of both sets of punishments. Students will then complete a writing assignment in which they have to make a claim about Hammurabi's laws and support it with textual evidence.
