Title: The Spread of Buddhism      Add Bookmark
Description: This Xpeditions lesson uses Buddhist art to trace the spread of Buddhism in Asia. Students study and compare and contrast famous Buddhist art and Buddhist sites in Asia, noting differences they see in the images. These differences can help students realize how Buddhist art reflects local values as it spreads. In the process, students generalize about how ideas change and adapt as they travel from one place to another. (This lesson assumes that students have already been introduced to the basic ideas of Buddhism and have some background about the various regions in Asia.)
