In this highly-engaging Indian Caste System lesson, students learn about (and create) the Indian caste system of Ancient India!
Students will be given "caste cards" that they will glue onto their caste pyramids. They will arrange their caste cards on the proper "level" based on the assigned reading (included). Once students have their order correct, they are to label 2 facts from each "caste" onto their assigned level. The lesson is great for artistic and kinesthetic learners as it breaks up the monotony of the classroom - students are cutting, glueing, organizing, writing, and learning!
Class begins by having students read a short assignment on the Aryan people, providing some background as Aryans are mentioned in the Caste System reading. An introductory reading with close-reading questions is included, as well as text that will assist students complete their caste pyramids! A PowerPoint is also included with some guiding reading questions once students have completed their caste pyramid!
