India: A Homeschool Unit Study
India :: A Land of Intrigue
When teaching our children ancient history, we are sure to include Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. Unfortunately we sometimes omit another great ancient civilization on the other side of the globe-- Ancient India.
Maybe we ourselves don't know much about Ancient India, or we have no resources that cover Ancient India. If you've come to this page, you are probably wanting to teach your child about Ancient India. Congratulations! The study of Ancient India is fascinating.
This page was created to help you design your own unit study about Ancient India.
