PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

No Teacher Prep! Just gather art supplies! This unit plan steps students through a process to organize ideas that trace similarities across three law documents into a visual presentation by creating a poster. At the end of this unit, students will link rules and laws to fairness and safety which are essential components for a civil society. Big thinking activity requires connecting ancient times to the creation of our nation. The bonus to the teacher is that the kids have a deep understanding of the requirement for school/class rules and internalize better compliance! Twenty four of the thirty two PDF slides are for presentation (interactive white board or document camera). The rest are instructions/resources for the teacher to cover Hammurabi's Code, The Ten Commandments and the Bill of Rights. Pictures of completed posters done by my 6th grade class are included. Compare/Contrast, Think-Pair-Share, and Rubric for the poster are also here for your convenience. Extension activity on "justice" added for your fast finishers!
