IN CLASS... Monday, 1/18/16
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!!!! Enjoy your day off and remember that MLK was inspired by one of the people we'll be studying about in India: Gandhi, a great peaceful protester that helped gain Indian independence from Britain through peaceful measures and not resorting to violence.
We reviewed the difference and similarities between Hinduism and Buddhism. We took notes on a Venn Diagram for this and then took notes about the Maurya and Gupta empires as well.
Students created a Google Presentation with pages on Hinduism and Buddhism and used pictures and bullet points to illustrate the beliefs of each religion. We'll expand on this Google presentation on Thurs/Fri to include the rest of our Review worksheet categories (geography, culture, etc.)
Thursday/Friday, 1/21/16 & 1/22/16
We expanded the Google Presentations that students worked on Wednesday to include the sections from the Chapter 7 Ancient India Review.
