This is an assignment I use the first day of school with my 10th grade World History students. It is a take home assignment where students have images of items such as:Ganges River, Dome of the Rock, Western Wall, Taj Mahal, Vatican, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Mosque. Each picture is labeled and has 2-4 questions concerning the picture. Students will have to identify the religious significance of the item pictured and which religion is it sacred to. I use this as a way to assess student knowledge and work ethic. Students are informed that they can seek information in any format except asking classmates for answers and have a week to turn it in. The entire assignment should take 30 minutes if students have access to internet. I count it as a HW assignment but it is more of a pre-diagnostic of student knowledge from the prior year.
NOTE: The last page in the file is actually the first page of the assignment. Sorry about that.
