The Aryans with their iron weapons and horse-drawn chariots, were excellent warriors. After conquering the peoples of the Indus River Valley, the Aryans moved into the Ganges River Valley, pushing the people living there further south. The Aryans brought their own religion to India, known as Hinduism. The Aryan conquest of India also led to the creation of a new social system, known as the caste system. Under this system, people were divided into five main social classes. Caste lines were rigid and based on birth. People were not permitted to marry outside their caste. One group of people were labeled the Untouchables. Untouchables were considered to be beneath all other social groups. They performed the lowliest tasks in society, such as sweeping the streets and cleaning up animal droppings. Hindus believed that people’s souls were continually reborn. One’s birth in a particular caste was therefore a punishment or reward for deeds in a past life. Lesson Objective: SWBAT explain how Hinduism and the Aryan invasion transformed Indian society.

Determine which caste or social classification this person belongs. “ In our caste, people have jobs as laborers, including street sweepers, tanners and washers. We live very simply in this caste. One unfortunate part of being in this caste is that we are not allowed to study the sacred Vedas books.” Caste: ______________________ “We are known as the ‘possessors of Sacred Knowledge’. My occupation within the caste is government minister. Other people in my caste are priests or teachers of law. If you are in this caste, you must study the sacred books known as the Vedas. You must also be a vegetarian and not eat meat. We believe that eating meat will hurt your soul.” Caste: ______________________ “We are known as the “commoners” because people of the caste are most common in India. The people of my caste are farmers, merchants and traders. Our caste is required to give money to the poor of our country. This is called ‘almsgiving’. We believe this will help our souls to gain in Karma.” Caste: ______________________ Bridging the GAP … Reaching New HEIGHTS
  • 5. S U M M I T A C A D E M Y C H A R T E R S C H O O L “ I was born into the lowest class in India and is not even considered a caste. People like me do jobs that people from other castes would not do. They work at removing dead animals from the village, and handling waste and garbage. Life is very hard. We are treated badly and we must live in a place that is outside of the village.” Caste: ______________________ “We are known as the “Holders of Authority”. My occupation is an officer in the army of India. Other people in my caste are land-owning noblemen. We cannot perform unclean acts such as cleaning the hides of animals or plowing fields. By not doing these things, we will remain pure.” Caste: ______________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ My caste: __________________________________ How I know this was my caste: ____________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ _____________________________________________________________________________ _ Bridging the GAP … Reaching New HEIGHTS
