Why the Indus Valley River Civilization's Writing Has NOT Been Translated - Reading, Questions, and Answer Key
This is an excellent resource to include with your unit on Ancient India! In this reading, students will read about why the writing from the Indus River Valley Civilization has not been translated while other major civilizations (like the Egyptians and Mayans) have. They will also read about the information that scholars do know about the writing.
This reading comes with a total of 7 questions to check for comprehension of the reading. The best yet, it comes with an ANSWER KEY to make grading easy for you!
I know how frustrating it can be for students when they receive large amounts of text to read, so I intentionally made this a one page reading! Whether you assign this as homework or do it together as a class, this is an excellent supplement to use while you teach about Ancient India.
