Product Description
In this activity, students must act as a Mesopotamian ruler and use the Code of Hammurabi to render judgement in 5 independent court cases. This fun assignment leads the students to read the code itself and, like a judge, provide interpretations and rulings while quoting the ancient law.

You can choose to use computers (website is on the worksheet) or you can print out the included Code (be ready to visit the copy machine to make 19 paged packets). Either way is fun and gets your students into the primary resource document.
