In November we will be studying the civilization of Ancient India. We will learn about the very first cities that developed along the Indus River Valley. We will learn about their culture and what an important role the caste system played in that. And, of course, we'll be studying the history of this civilization. Hinduism and Buddhism first developed in India. We will learn what these two major religions believe and how they first began.
