Looking for a fun and different way to have your students learn key information of the five major religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam?) Then look no further than this resource. For this project, students complete research on aspects of all of the five major religions and record their findings on the included graphic organizer. They learn about important people and dates associated with the religion as well as some of the key tenants of the different belief systems. In addition, they make a connection to modern times by learning the current world population practicing each faith and plot the important locations of each religion on a map. Beyond, addressing social studies standards around the different religions of the world, this product offers students the chance to practice the valuable skill of conducting proper research.
When they are finished with their research, their transfer the information to the included graphic organizers which will be turned in to their dedecahedron sculptures. Don't worry, I've included step by step instructions for assembling and included a picture of a completed sculpture as an example. I hope you enjoy this product. Happy researching!
