This worksheet, with complete teacher answer key, can be used as an in-class lesson plan, homework assignment, or sub plan. Students learn about Siddhartha Gautama and the origin story of Buddhism, and analyze Buddhist texts and primary sources (The Four Noble Truths Sermon and The Five Precepts of Buddhism) to learn basic Buddhist beliefs. Students compare/contrast Hinduism to Buddhism, analyze Buddhism's appeal in Ancient India, and finish by completing a fun application activity deciding whether everyday choices would be right or wrong in Buddhism.
This resource is a great companion to my lesson on "Hinduism in India"
and also leads right into an engaging lesson on "The Spread of Buddhism Throughout Asia"
