Storyboard Text

  • The Indus River civilization existed 5,000 years ago in the modern countries of Pakistan and northern India. The largest Indus cities were named Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.
  • The people of Monhenjo-Daro were actively in trade with other people of the Indus River Valley. Seals, sculptures, and other artifacts from Monhenjo-Daro or the Indus River Valley Civilization have been found in Mesopotamia.
  • Most of the Indus people spent more time on the roof than inside their homes because it was warm inside so they used the roof as extra rooms. With a number of courtyard houses have both a washing platform and a dedicated toilet waste disposal hole that ends up in the drain.
  • To shower the Indus people would stand on brick and tip clean water over themselves from a jar. The dirty water went down a pipe into a drain in the street.
  • To keep the Indus people entertained they would make toy carts and toy animals from baked clay. They also had animals such as dogs, farm animals and others.
  • The reasons why the people choose to live in a river valley was because they needed river water to drink and to wash and water their fields they also used it for religious ceremonies.
