Students examine Ashoka's impact on Ancient India and the Mauryan Dynasty in this complete lesson, which can also be assigned as homework or a sub plan. They begin by reviewing historical context and geography of Ancient India, then learn about the origins of the Mauryan Empire and Ashoka's Edicts, making cross-cultural comparisons to Hammurabi's Code. They examine primary source excerpts from Ashoka's Edicts, then finish by analyzing Ashoka's incorporation of Buddhism in his governance and determine his overall impact on Ancient India. Complete answer key included!
