Napoleon s civil code

Napoleon’s Civil Code

  • One of the most important reforms enacted by Napoleon was organizing the French system of law.

  • Prior to 1800, northern France followed Germanic laws and southern France was dominated by the old Roman law system; plus, there were still areas under feudal control.

  • Napoleon and his legal commission created a unified civil law code – the first in the history of France – which became official in 1804.

  • This code is regarded as one of Napoleon’s biggest achievements and will finally bring end to the French Revolution.

Human planet

Human Planet

  • Documentary series that highlights the challenging relationship between humans and nature.

  • Humans are the most successful species on the planet. People have found remarkable ways to adapt and survive in the harshest places imaginable.

  • This way of life developed over time. People have been able to do this by learning to live with and utilize the other creatures they share this earth with.

  • Today we will learn more about the practices and culture that humans developed in the Arctic.


Ilulissat, Greenland. Each year, the residents here endure 54 days of darkness beginning in November. During this time, they try to live their lives as normal. They continue to hunt and fish. Adults go to work. Children go to school. But it's all under the cover of darkness. As the dark days drag on, everybody yearns for the sun to come back. Finally in mid-January, they get their wish.


A fisherman in Ilulissat, Greenland, faces the rising sun after 54 days of darkness. Ilulissat is situated at the mouth of a 25-mile ice fjord filled with enormous icebergs. Most of the icebergs are produced by a single glacier: Sermeq Kujalleq, one of the fastest and most active glaciers in the world. Sermeq Kujalleq produces more icebergs than any other glacier outside of Antarctica.


Amos Jensen, an Inuit hunter from Saattut, Greenland, tends to his sled dogs. The dogs are essential — they will help the Amos travel across the thousands of miles of sea ice that leads to his hunting grounds, Without the sled dogs, Amos and his family would starve. Says Amos, "My dogs are very important to me. A hunter's survival depends on well-fed dogs


Lukasi Nappaaluk stands on the ocean floor beneath an unstable roof of shifting sea ice, which could collapse at any moment. This spectacular but dangerous opportunity to gather mussels, an important winter food, is only available during the spring equinox which brings the most extreme tides of the year. She has only minutes before the temporary chamber is flooded by the returning tides. Many Inuits have died gathering mussels here.


Thule Inuit from Northern Greenland with a fresh narwhal carcass — a critical food source in this part of the Arctic. Vitamin C is extremely rare in the Arctic, but the narwhal's skin (called "magtaaq") has almost as much vitamin C as oranges. Without it, it's unlikely the Inuit would be able to survive here

  • All students will be broken up into groups and given a specific component of Napoleon’s life to write about from the reading.

  • You will take all your knowledge on that part and transfer it onto the graffiti board.

  • On the graffiti board you should write facts, draw pictures, sketch important concepts or reiterate ideas about your Napoleon reading.

  • It is your blank canvas, do whatever you like. It should be a free expression of your knowledge. BE CREATIVE!

  • After your graffiti board is finished, you will present to the class. Make sure you are knowledgeable on your reading – you will teach it to the class!
