Storyboard Text

  • Introduction to the Indus civilization.
  • The Indus civilization lived on modern-day Pakistan and Northern India.
  • The Indus people lived by the Indus River. This civilization lived 5,000 years ago.
  • Homes
  • Most of us have small homes which we also use as workshops.
  • YEY! We get to play on our parent's courtyard.
  • Richer people had courtyards like me. It's really hot in the Indus valley so in a courtyard, we can relax. People that don't have a courtyard still relax on their roofs.
  • Toilets, shower rooms, and sanitation
  • Most of the Indus cities had a central well where people could get clean water.
  • In their bathrooms, the Indus people stood on a brick "shower tray" and tipped the clean water over themselves from a jar.
  • Dirty water flowed out of the house through pipes into a drain in the street.
  • Great bath and religious purification
  • The Great Bath was used for religious purification. It was used for the purification of the body and soul.
  • The "Great Bath" is the earliest public water tank of the ancient world.
  • Use of Seals
  • We use seals to show who owned a sack of grain, or that the correct city tax has been paid.
  • If you press the seal into soft clay, it will leave a copy of itself on the clay. When the clay dries hard, it can be used as a tag, which could then be tied to a pot or basket.
  • Distant trade and trade products
  • Let's give them two sacks of wheat for one basket of minerals.
  • Traders come in boat and travel long distances to exchange their goods.
  • We don't have money, so what we do is exchange goods.
