Using the following link, you will complete each task in your NOTEBOOK about Ancient India describing what you learned from using the British Museum website. Once again, you will WRITE your answers in your NOTEBOOK.
Here is the Link: British Museum--Ancient India. (open this site in a new tab so you can work on the site and see WSG at the same time. Right-click and select "open in new tab")
Task #1: The Buddha: click on the link. On the left side of the screen, there is a list. Click on "The Buddha." After that, you will click on the picture in the middle of the screen. Once you have done that, you will click on the link on the left side of the screen that says "Story." This story will teach you about the man who started the religion of Buddhism. Click on "next" at the bottom of the screen to advance through the entire story. For this task, you must summarize the story of Buddha. Tell me about what happens in the story and what this guy does. Summarizing does not mean just retyping the entire story. Summarizing means to cut out the unimportant things and just explain the important parts of the story to understand what happens. For all you sentence counters: about 7-8 sentences should do that job. This will be the first item in your notebook, titled: Task #1: Story of Buddha.
Task #2: Geography: Go to the beginning of the British Museum website and click on "Geography." After you click on geography, you must click on the picture to enter the geography section. At that point, it will have a couple paragraphs about geography. Tell me three (3) things about the geography of India. That is all you have to do for this task. Three complete sentences. Label this "Task #2: Geography" in your notebook right under task #1.
Task #3: Early Hinduism: Once again, go back to the beginning of the British Museum site. Click on "Early Hinduism." Then, click on the picture to enter the site on early Hinduism. Your next step is to click on "explore" which is located on the left side of the screen. Next you will see a graphic of many gods and goddesses of ancient India. Pick THREE of them and tell me their name and what they are the god or goddess of. Label this "Task #3: Early Hinduism" in your notebook directly under task #2 answers.
Make sure you label your three tasks. This helps organize your findings and it helps me go through your information much easier.
