Product Description
This lesson will get students to think about the purpose of law codes and the different situations early governments had to deal with. After completing the "game," students will compare their approach to specific situations to how Hammurabi's Code dealt with the same issues.

This lesson includes:
Powerpoint with short student notes and answers to game.
Student handout to record answers to game and powerpoint notes.
Questions to be posted at each station for the "game" portion.

How to use this lesson:

1. Cut questions into strips and place around the room. Provide one game handout/notes page for each student.
2. Have students rotate to each question and record how they think the situation should be handled.
3. Use Powerpoint to compare student answers to real text from the Code of Hammurabi. Have students record Hammurabi's laws as you progress.
4. Complete fill in the blank notes with students (about 2/3 of a page) as you finish the Powerpoint. The notes are designed to give a brief overview of Hammurabi's Code and its context.
