About This Product

Hammurabi’s Code of Law Debate is all you need to to have your 6-8 graders engaged in learning ancient history. This Hammurabi’s Code of Law Debate is a project based resource which includes collaborative activities that are fun and engaging.

This Hammurabi’s Code of Law Debate resource is a great one to have your students understand what is happening in the world today. As Hammurabi created the first law codes for mankind's improved life, it serves as a starting point to explore contemporary laws such as our second amendment, equal rights, health care, etc. This resource will help your students imagen the kind of life Hammurabi's reign provided to its people. This was a time of no laws and full of violent crimes, there was no justice.

Cross-curricular Options:

LANGUAGE ARTS, During the debate, the students will actively participate by taking notes and selecting a minimum of 2-4 laws, with the option to choose more, and then compose an argumentative essay expressing their personal opinions about the chosen laws. This approach ensures their active engagement throughout the debate.

Instead of using traditional methods like lecturing, reading texts, writing definitions, or answering questions, which can be tedious and disengaging, students will become active learners. By actively participating in their studies, they will develop a better understanding and grasp of the subject matter, rather than being passive recipients of information that might disinterest them.

WE ALL KNOW THAT KIDS FORGET what they’ve been taught soon after they’ve had their test. I’m positive these hands on activities will leave a lasting impression and be something they’ll remember even after they’ve left your classroom.

☆I REMEMBER sitting in history class, as a student, and being bored out of my mind. The teacher just lectured and all I could do was look at the clock and wish that I was some place else ANYPLACE else! Needless to say I learned very little that year. I only began liking ancient history after I became a 6th grade teacher, years later, and vowed that I would make it come alive for my children. I didn’t want them to go through what I did. That negative experience gave me the impetus to use PBL learning in most of my teaching and I’m so glad I did.
