Her husband chained the girl up outside after she fell ill and Jennifer W did nothing to save her, prosecutors say.
She also faces murder and weapons offences charges.
If found guilty in the terrorism court in the city of Munich she faces a maximum sentence of life in jail.
The five-year-old girl was among a group of prisoners-of-war when Jennifer W and her husband bought her.
German media say the child may have been a member of the Yazidi minority, many of whom were captured and enslaved by IS as the militant group swept across northern Iraq in 2014.
“After the girl fell ill and wet her mattress, the husband of the accused chained her up outside as punishment and let the child die in agony of thirst in the scorching heat,” prosecutors said in a statement.
“The accused allowed her husband to do so and did nothing to save the girl.”
