Description

This resource includes blank and filled-in charts about 7 emperors and 5 empires in Ancient India. Students can use the blank charts to take notes when learning about the Ancient Indian rulers and dynasties. The charts that are already filled in with information are written in easy-to-understand language so students who are not reading on grade level can use them instead of their textbook or other materials to learn about the emperors and empires. Google Drive™ versions of the charts are also included in this resource. A glossary is provided to help your students comprehend the information in the filled-in charts.

✓ Please note:

* This resource is included in a money-saving bundle that also contains 2 vocabulary resources about Ancient India. You can find the bundle HERE.

Full Description:

The 12 charts in this resource provide information about the most famous emperors and empires of Ancient India. The glossary includes 24 words used in the charts and defines them in context to help your students better comprehend the material.

You can use the charts in several ways:

* As a graphic organizer while reading about emperors and empires, to consolidate information, or as a tool for checking comprehension after learning about the rulers and dynasties.

* The filled-in charts can be utilized as a basic source of information for your students

* You can orally present the material to your classes as a listening comprehension activity and have students write down the facts in the blank charts.

* You can cut the information on the filled-in charts into strips and do matching activities with them.

* The charts can also be used as study guides and can even be adapted to be used as tests.

* Once the charts are completed, they can be used as the basis for writing activities.

The emperors included in this resource are:

* Chandragupta Maurya

* Ashoka

* Samudra Gupta

* Chandragupta II

* Babur

* Akbar

* Shah Jehan

The empires are:

* The Maurya

* The Gupta

* The Mughal

* The Pallava

* The Chola

Many textbooks do not discuss the Pallava and Chola empires when covering Ancient India but these were 2 of the largest and longest-lasting empires in the southern part of the country. They contributed much to the history and culture of India so I have included them as well.

In addition, there is a word search puzzle with 3 levels of difficulty that you can use with early finishers, as a challenge, as homework, or just for fun. Please note that Google Drive versions of the puzzles are not included in this resource.

A list of the ELA Common Core standards this resource helps address is also included in the resource. Sample WIDA Model Performance Indicators are included as well.

Compiling information in these charts lets students easily compare and contrast details about several major emperors and empires of Ancient India. Whether used for note-taking tasks, reading comprehension purposes, test review, or as the basis for writing activities, using these Historic-ELL™ charts will help students learn about this important period of world history.

You can use this resource remotely in 2 ways:

a) Tell students to use the Google Drive version of the charts.

b) Send photocopies of the blank and/or filled-in charts you want students to use or email students the charts and tell students to print them out if they have access to a printer. If using the blank charts, tell students to read their textbook or search online for answers to the questions and write answers in the appropriate sections on the charts. If you wish, have students send/email their work back to you so you check it. If using the filled-in charts, tell the students to read the charts. To use the puzzles, decide which ones to use and send photocopies home or email copies to students and tell them to print them out if they have access to a printer. Tell students to write answers to do the puzzles, then send/email the work back to you so you can check it. Alternatively, you can also send home the answer keys and tell students to correct the puzzles themselves.

And in case you are wondering, I took the photograph of the Taj Mahal and other images in this resource when I was in India on a Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program.
