Ancient India Projects
If you're a teacher, parent, or day camp counselor thinking of spending a week or so on ancient India, here's some ideas other people have found useful:
For clothes, a long t-shirt over loose pants like sweatpants is good for boys, or wrapping a long piece of cloth around their waist and knotting it to form a dhoti. Girls will want to try on a sari; you'll find instructions for making a sari here.
For food, an easy solution is to get take-out food from an Indian restaurant. Or, get mangoes and try tastes of sliced mango. If you want to make your own Indian food, here's a recipe for vegan potato samosas that you can easily eat without silverware, and without reheating. Or try this lentil stew with yogurt. Making yogurt is a good project for an India week - it's very common to make your own yogurt at home in India.
