Product Description
This activity features 5 excerpts from Hammurabi's Code of Laws that students analyze. First, students determine the purpose of each law was, then think about a modern-day equivalent.

After completing the chart of all 5 laws, students answer 3 analysis questions that focus on the inequalities in Babylonian society.

Each of the selected laws in the worksheet show how different rules and punishments applied to men and women and different classes in society. It's a great way to introduce students to Hammurabi's Code of Laws and make connections to laws today.

An editable Google Doc version of the activity and answer key are both provided for you as well.
