PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach students about the Indus River Valley Civilization of Ancient India with these 26 vocabulary words and definitions, one for each letter of the alphabet. This resource will help English Language Learners and other students learn about the geography, history, people, and places of this West Asian civilization. Two versions of the words and definitions are included: poster size and flashcard size. Just print them out, laminate if desired, and they are ready to use as a word wall or in a bulletin board display. Photocopy the flashcard-sized version for students to use as a reference or for class activities.

Each word and each definition in the poster full-page version is on a separate page. There are two styles: One style is in full color and the other style is only outlined in color. Vocabulary definitions are written in simple English so all students, including ELLs at intermediate levels of English proficiency (and higher), can understand the meanings. The flashcard version has four words or definitions on one page, in the same two styles as the larger-sized versions.

Besides creating bulletin boards or word walls, and having students write the words and definitions in notebooks, this product lists an additional 13 ways to use these vocabulary words. As well, multiple meaning words are noted. Blank templates are provided for teachers who would like to add their own vocabulary words and definitions for this topic. This product aligns with ELA Common Core Language standards for vocabulary.

FYI: The cover photo is from Lothal, a major Indus Valley city 4,000 years ago. I took the photograph when I visited this archeological site on a trip to India as part of a Fulbright exchange program.
