Product Description
Before they learn about Hammurabi's Code, students complete this activity in which they pretend to be an ancient king or queen tasked with creating punishments for a given set of crimes.

I recommend setting up the assignment by reminding students that they are not themselves, but rather ancient rulers and emphasizing what that means for the assignment.

The following day I have students work in small groups to analyze the Hamurabbi's Code excerpt by popcorn reading, highlighting key points, and taking notes in the margins.

Students can then write a reflection comparing and contrasting their codes with Hammurabi's.

This is an excellent pre-seminar activity, using the excerpt as the text.
