Are your students opinionated? Help make history come to life for them by putting them in the position of a judge in Mesopotamia!
This lesson plan introduces students to Hammurabi's code and systems of laws from ancient civilizations. Students are asked to interpret problems that arise when people live together in a society. After students determine what they would do, they are exposed to the text of Hammurabi's code and reflect on the consequences listed in the document.
