Power point #1 is entitled, Ancient Civilizations – India & Southeast Asia and contains 35 slides and covers the following:
Some of the oldest human remains in South Asia date back to around 75,000 years ago. These early humans made tools and lived a nomadic hunter/gatherer life. Farming developed around 5000 BCE. Slowly, humans began to live in permanent places and villages. These eventually turned into cities and created one of the earliest human civilizations in the world.
This civilization was not discovered until the 1920’s CE, and much of this civilization remains a mystery. One reason the Indus Valley civilization is so mysterious is because historians have not been able to translate their complicated written language called Indus Script.
There are thousands of artifacts with 400-600 different written symbols. Most of these symbols were pressed into soft clay with seals that makes an impression in the soft clay. Seals are sometimes in a cylinder shape so they can be rolled on the clay.
The caste system got started in India. It is believed that the Indo-Europeans had a similar division of their society, but historians don’t agree about how the caste system originated. Each level or caste has jobs such as merchant, warrior, or priest. Castes were very important to people's identities. Thankfully, much if the Caste System is no longer practiced in India today.
The Indus River Valley, was one of the first 4 early civilizations to develop and thrive. It is estimated that Ancient India was the biggest of all 4 early civilizations.

Power point #2 is entitled, Ancient Civilizations – Ancient India - Vocabulary Exercise and contains 51 slides and covers the following:
This product is a vocabulary exercise, in power point format, that covers the entire unit on Ancient Civilizations – India. The students are provided a list of the 48 vocabulary words within the presentation. Each vocabulary word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
Humans have a long and mysterious history. Diverse types of people have worked together to figure out the mysteries of our past. Archaeologist, historians, and scientists have discovered many secrets to the beginnings of civilizations.
The assignment is to review and master each of the 48 vocabulary words, to understand what they mean and how they became part of our vocabulary today. Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little “stiff,” so I have highly animated each of the 51 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
