For this project students will be working to understand the similarities and differences between the 5 main religions of the world. The religions students will be researching are as follows... .
In order to complete the research students will need to create a foldable to gather their information. For each religion you will need to know where the religion began, the founder of the religion, the god/gods that are worshiped in the religion, major beliefs of each religion, and any other important information (including where the religion can be found today)..
Once students have found all of their research there are two different options of projects that can be complete.
OPTION 1: An individual project where students research all 5 religions AND compare/contrast them on their own. They do this by writing the information they find into 7 paragraphs (one paragraph per religion, one for comparing, one for contrasting).
OPTION 2: A partner project. Students will choose two religions to research separately, and one to research together. They will then either write the information into an essay OR put their information from the foldable onto an optional poster.
This project will take between 3-5 days depending on your class times.
