What our All about India lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: All about India explores the amazing history and culture of the people of India. Students will learn about this incredible country and some of the significant events and people of its history, such as Mahatma Ghandi. They will also discover where India is located on a map. This lesson is for students in 5th grade and 6th grade.
Every lesson plan provides you with a classroom procedure page that outlines a step-by-step guide to follow. You do not have to follow the guide exactly. The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the yellow box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. For this lesson, you will need pencils, pens, highlighters, and a topographical map of India (or similar maps).
Options for Lesson
The “Options for Lesson” section of the classroom procedure page lists a number of suggestions for ideas and activities you could incorporate into the lesson. One idea is to take advantage of the excellent resources from National Geographic and show your students stunning photos of India. You could also show the Learn Bright video about India to your students to supplement the lesson plan. Another option is to invite a speaker who migrated from India to speak to the class and answer their questions.
The paragraph on this page provides a little more information or guidance on what to expect from the lesson. It explains that this lesson is not meant to be all encompassing of India. Instead, the objective is to provide a basic overview of one of the fastest-growing economic and political powers. You can use the blank lines to record any thoughts or ideas you have as you prepare.
ALL ABOUT INDIA LESSON PLAN WORKSHEETS
The All about India lesson plan includes three worksheets: an activity worksheet, a practice worksheet, and a homework assignment. Each one will reinforce students’ comprehension of lesson material in different ways and help them demonstrate when they learned. Use the guidelines on the classroom procedure page to determine when to distribute each worksheet to the class.
Worksheet Answer Keys
If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.
