Indus Valley Civilization Teacher Workshop

arts and crafts students working with middle school students

Back in March, the Center for South Asia invited middle and high school teachers to participate in a one-day workshop that introduced new perspectives on the Indus Civilization, the first civilization in India and Pakistan. Participating teachers were able to incorporate their new knowledge in creating k-12 curriculum for their students. High school teacher Lynn Zetzman created a lesson plan in which her students team-taught middle schoolers about the process of making clay toys in the Indus Valley. Her lesson plan is available on our lesson plans page.
