Storyboard Text

  • Hello. I am from the land of India. Let me tell you about the land of Ancient India
  • People in Ancient India lived in the Indus Valley Civilization, near the Indus River. The Civilization lasted from 3300 B.C. to 1600 B.C. It was located near the Indus River, which is located in present day Pakistan.
  • The houses of The Indus Valley Civilization were made out of mud-bricks. They were baked in a kiln so they were stronger, and they also lasted longer.
  • Hello. I am here to tell you about trade in the Ancient India.
  • People in Ancient India did a lot of trade with Mesopotamia. They traded food, for pots and cloth. Some types of pots they traded for were terracotta pots, beads, gold, silver, and colored gems.
  • Hello. I am here to tell you about The Great Bath. The Great Bath was very important to the people living in the Indus Civilization.
  • It was a way for them to not only clean them selves physically, but they can also cleanse them selves spiritually.
  • The toilets were "flushed", by pouring water down a pipe. When taking a shower, people poured water over their heads, and it went down a drain pipe underneath the street.
  • The Indus Civilization were also the first people to create toilets and showers. These toilets and showers were connected to a pipe that led down a street.
  • A seal is a stamp that is pressed into wet clay. People in the Indus Valley Civilization used these stamps for ownership, or as a receipt. They used seals to stamp their name because no one knew how to write.
  • Hello. I am here to tell you about uses of seals in Ancient India.
