Product Description

The Ancient Indus River Civilization
is part two of my teaching unit ANCIENT INDIA and the Indus River Valley civilizations PowerPoint Presentation . It highlights the Geography, Religion, Achievements, Politics, Economics, and Social Structure of the Ancient Indus River Valley Civilization. This is an excellent resource to use either on its own or to supplement the text book. This presentation has a built in component for discussions and writing. I have been using this presentation with my students for the several years (and have shared it with other teachers). All the students have really enjoy the visuals and the interactive nature built into the presentation. Everyone who has used the presentations reports that the students are highly focused and engaged during each lesson.

*******Revised in March 2016 with more slides and a duplicate presentation without the history or ELA Common Core Standards***********
