PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students read through a shortened version of the Roman Twelve Tables with a partner, and try to understand what is being stated in each table, and what problem in society is trying to be solved.

Next, the teacher can review student answers and talk about why Romans might have had certain laws.

For the next activity, students can do this as a stations activity, or the worksheets can be handed out at each table group. They will examine 6 Roman laws and 6 U.S. laws that relate to each other, and complete a chart on how these laws are similar and different.

Lastly, students will complete a short exit slip.

What's Included:
-Warm up/ do now worksheet with a picture of the Tarpeian Rock to get students engaged in the lesson (people were thrown from the Tarpeian Rock if they lied in court, students love this!)
-Document A: Copy of the Roman Twelve Tables
-Analysis chart to breakdown the Twelve Tables (students usually work in partners for this). You can have students do all Twelve Tables, or less.
-Station worksheets for comparing Roman Laws to current U.S. Laws
-Station analysis worksheets
-Exit Slip

*This is one of my favorite activities to do with my students, and they love it!
