India Geography, Introduction, and the Indus Valley

posted Jan 8, 2018, 1:00 PM by Warren Wannamaker

Students will spend the week learning some preliminary information about India. 

We'll begin by looking at some of the major physical features of the region, and how humans interacted with them. This will culminate in a small quiz this Wednesday, where students will demonstrate their ability to identify the locations of these physical features. We'll talk more about this assessment on Tuesday. 

We'll then create a small timeline of the key events, peoples, and individuals who we'll be further discussing during the unit. Then, we'll move on to an exploration of the first of these groups, the Ancient Indus Valley Civilization. We'll learn about how their cities were designed, what their lives were possibly like, and what eventually happens to the civilization. 

Have a great week!
