Designed as a specific resource for Primary Teachers who are teaching the Indus Valley.
Mohenjo Daro, or "Mound of the Dead" is an ancient Indus Valley Civilization city that flourished between 2600 and 1900 BCE. It was one of the first world and ancient Indian cities. The site was discovered in the 1920s and lies in Pakistan's Sindh province. Only a handful of archaeologists have excavated here. This is great for photographs - the index works really well and will support this unit so well.
A wonderful slide show which will support the teaching of the Indus valley.
“Wow what a great website - I love it! I am a Reception teacher and some of the stuff on this website is super. I will be sharing it with fellow colleagues tomorrow.”
