Activity Overview


The story of imperialism in India is often associated with Gandhi’s campaign of nonviolent protest. However, it is important to understand the process India went through in going from a sovereign kingdom to a part of the British Empire. In this activity, students will create a spider map that answers the question, "How did India become part of the British Empire?”

Students should address the following questions in their analysis:

  1. What role did the British East India Company play?
  2. What was the Sepoy Rebellion?
  3. Why was India considered the “Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire”?

Extended Activity

Students can create a second spider chart that shows how India was able to gain independence. Students may also want to take a closer look at the causes of the Sepoy rebellion, as an example of cultural miscommunication. They can create a T Chart analyzing cause and effect, or a timeline of the events leading to the Sepoy rebellion and the aftermath.
