A discovery quest is a fun way to engage students in learning and showing what they know. Students will look at the different images and drag them into the categories they belong in. In this way, they can think critically about the significance and function of each object. Teachers should encourage students to give reasons for why they chose each category. There should be time allotted for discussion and analysis before delving into reading or research about India to confirm their answers.
This activity can be used as a preview or a post assessment, individually or as a whole class. It can also be used as a differentiated activity to students GRAPES charts for students that need more support.
Objective: Place the Ancient Indian characters, items, animals, and scenes in the correct category.
- Draw a line or drag each image to the category where you think it belongs. What do you think is the function or significance of each scene, character, item, or animal? Be prepared to share your ideas!
- Save and submit your storyboard.
