Using a G.R.A.P.E.S. Chart to organize information about Ancient Civilizations is a useful tool to enhance students' analysis of the characteristics and contributions of a society. Going further and including visuals helps students to better retain the details of each category. In this activity, students will focus on just one aspect, and create a spider map that details the achievements of Ancient India in art, architecture, technologies, writing, etc.
By focusing on just one category, students are encouraged to include more information and should complete 3-6 cells. Students can come together after they’ve created their storyboards to share what they’ve learned. The full G.R.A.P.E.S. chart can be used as a post assessment after students have presented.
