Product Description
This lesson looks at 5 of the laws from the Code of Hammurabi, king of ancient Babylon. It then asks students to put these laws in their own words and to compare them to the laws of today. The objective is to have students understand: 1. The history of laws, why laws are important, and 2. That laws evolve over time and reflect the changing values of society. Hopefully there is an understanding that "An Eye for and Eye" is not always the best way to enforce laws.
