Project: Create an Ancient India Newspaper
FORMAT: Use a ruler to make straight lines to write your story and to make the boxes for the pictures. The headline is in big writing at the top, use stencils or your best handwriting. This can be in any color.
Introduction: You will be creating a “newspaper” page about ancient India. Remember, newspapers report what’s happening at the moment, so you will be writing as if the topics are happening right now.
Naming your newspaper: “Ancient India” needs to be in the title for your newspaper but newspapers always have some sort of ending. So, pick an ending to your newspaper: daily, times, post, news, resident, leader, citizen, messenger, tribune, star, chronicle, press, sun, telegram, gazette, journal.
Choosing the Content: Pick 4 of the following headlines to include on your newspaper:
“Ancient City Gets a New Look” (Mohenjo-Daro)
“Travel Ancient India” (geography)
“The Aryans Arrive” (Aryans)
“Asoka Makes a Difference” (Asoka and Mauryan Empire)
“Spotlight: Hinduism” (Hinduism)
“The Making of the Buddha” (Buddhism)
