Hammurabi’s Code Activity

On Thursday, the fourth grade students participated in an activity to learn and reflect on Hammurabi’s Code.  The students pretended they were living in “the cradle of civilization” and tried to picture what life was like back then. The students visited six stations that each had a different situation with the corresponding Hammurabi’s Code. The students contemplated if Hammurabi’s punishments were fair or cruel in a classroom discussion.
