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. After your students become familiar with these words, they will have a better understanding and a deeper appreciation of the forces that shaped the history and society of India.

This resource lists 13 ways you can use these vocabulary words so your students learn their meanings. Another task your students can do to learn the vocabulary is sort the words into categories and 10 categories are listed for your convenience. Images for the words are not included because one of the activities is for students to demonstrate their understanding by drawing their own pictures of the words. Blank templates are provided so you can add your own vocabulary words and definitions if you wish.

The vocabulary definitions are written in simple English so all students, including ELLs at intermediate and advanced levels of English proficiency, can understand the meanings.

Two versions of the vocab words and definitions are included in this resource:
1) Poster size, with 1 word or definition on each 8.5" x 11" page. You can print out this version, laminate the pages, and and use them as a word wall or in a bulletin board display.
2) Flashcard size, with 4 words or definitions per page. You can photocopy and distribute sets of flashcards for your students to use as references in class, at home or in a center.

The full-page version and the flashcard version come in 2 styles: One in full color and the other outlined in color if you want to save on printer ink.

Explanatory information and a list of ELA Common Core Language standards addressed are also provided in this resource.

And in case you were wondering, the photograph on the cover shows a Shiva Dance of Life artifact which is a symbol of Hinduism, that I got in New Delhi when I visited India on a Fulbright program.
