Since you are currently learning all about ancient India, I thought it would be fun for you to take a virtual field trip to present day India via Project Explorer. (Image courtesy of projectexplorer.org)
1. I would like for you to watch the video “The British in India” and read the text below clicking on the links for more in-depth information.
2. On the right-hand side of the page, watch the videos ” A Taste of Mumbai” and “The Art of Henna” and read the texts and click on the links under each respective video for more information on those topics.
3. After the Henna video, you can watch the video on “The Sari.”
When you have completed all this, write to this prompt:
Reflect on what you have learned from your short trip and include the following:
History of India
And some personal thoughts (Have you been to India? Want to go? Have you had Henna done? Eaten Indian food? Anything else?)
Create your paragraphs where you see fit…watch your sentence structure!
