Tchefuncte Middle School sixth-grade social studies students in Mrs. Jiles' class made their theatrical debut this year as they learned all about the beginnings of law in Ancient Babylon. "Hammurabi and His Law Code" was performed in a set of two casts to family, friends, and neighbors! Seth Rubin stated, "The best part of the Hammurabi Law Code is that the belief that the strong should not oppress the weak. There were laws that tried to protect people with little political power, as children and widows. Although, some laws were quite harsh." A lesson to show the beginnings of law as we know today turned out the be great fun!
