PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These 47 vocabulary words and definitions teach students about the Aryan civilization and the origins and beliefs of Hinduism and Buddhism. Words include major people, religious ideas, places, literature, the caste system, and gods of Ancient India. The words and definitions come in two sizes: a) Poster size, with each word and definition on a separate page and b) Flashcard size, with four words or definitions on each page. Just print them out, laminate if desired, and they are ready to use!

Besides creating bulletin boards or word walls, or distributing the flashcard-sized versions to students, this product lists an additional 13 ways to use these vocabulary words. Images for the words are not included in this product because one of the activities is for students to demonstrate their understanding by drawing their own pictures of the words. Sorting activities can also help students learn vocabulary and these words are sorted into ten different categories on other pages of this product. Blank templates are provided for teachers who would like to add their own vocabulary words and definitions for these topics.

There are two versions of the words and definitions: one in full color and one that is only outlined in color. Each vocabulary word relates to the Aryans, Hinduism, or Buddhism in some way. Each vocabulary definition is written in simple English so all students, including ELLs at intermediate levels of English proficiency, can understand the meanings.

These vocabulary cards are CCSS-aligned and will help all students, not just English Language Learners, learn about the history, people, places, and beliefs of people in Ancient India.

FYI: The cover photo shows a Shiva Dance of Life artifact that I purchased in India when I visited the country on a Fulbright exchange program.
