Activity Materials/Instructions:

For the Activity there are 3 resources in total: The Situation Sheet, The Law’s of Hammurabi’s Code, and a Graphic Organizer.

- First, students will look at the situations and can pick any 5 out the 9 (this can vary and depends on the teacher/class)

- They will then read their scenarios and come up with different laws/punishments for the crimes on the graphic organizer.

- Next, they will look at the Law’s of Hammurabi’s code and figure out which law addresses their situation. After, they will briefly summarize what the Babylonians would have done about the situation under Hammurabi’s code.

- A key is provided showing which situations match up with each law, however due to the open ended nature of the rest of the activity, a key is not provided.

- Lastly, students will evaluate the severity of Hammurabi's code, and compare it to what they thought should have been done. They will then describe if they feel Hammurabi's code was too lenient, too harsh, or fair.
