This product is a mapping activity on the Spread of Buddhism. Students will label and color different aspects such as; bodies of water, label regions and color in the areas Buddhism started and spread too. This activity also includes a graphic organizer and primer on the Buddhism religion including the origins, Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path and Nirvana.
Included in the product is a blackline political map of the region needed to be mapped. I typically make the map a 11x17 making it easier for students to label.
This is a rigorous map project that makes the students learn about the Spread of Hinduism. The product is a ZIP file that includes the Map Directions (Word Doc) and a PPT that has necessary visuals for the students to complete the map. A key is included for the questions and the map.
