Product Description
This product from Crummy History is a role playing activity aligned with Justinian's Code.

In this role playing activity, students will act as an official deciding on laws to keep, change, or discard. This is exactly what Justinian and his officials did when they created Justinian's Code! Students will read outdated state laws. The students work in groups to decide what they want to do with each law they are given. They can choose to keep the law or revise the law to fit our modern era. They must provide an explanation for why they decided the way they did. Justinian's Code took outdated Roman Laws that contradicted each other and improved upon them or threw them out. That is exactly what the students will do in this role-playing activity.

This activity can also be used as Bell Work or Independent Work.
