Introduction

Welcome to the Indus River Valley Webquest. 

So far this year we have examined two civilizations through webquests; the first was Mesopotamia, the second, Egypt. Now we begin the Indus civilization. Below is a map depicting the three civilizations. While these are all very different groups of people, they share many common characteristics, and one very common geographical feature. Think about what you know and what you have learned about prosperous civilizations. Take a close look at the map and see if you can figure it out!


This webquest will explore the geography, the artifacts, the developments, and the advancement of this great civilization that developed along the Indus River.
