This project is a great starting project for a world geography, world history, or world cultures class. It can be used as an individual or group project.
It is so difficult to understand the world and cultures without some view of religion.
The assignments are designed to help students learn to break projects into parts.
Mapping the places presented will allow the students to glimpse part of the pattern of world religions.
Saving the posters produced will allow you a wealth of meaningful bulletin board material and students the reinforcement of seeing their work displayed.
Grading is eased by providing a rubric and a grading plan.
Within the project packet you will find the following:
•teaching notes, suggestions, and a few cautions
•sample letter to parents
•sacred places choices chart with multiple choices for each of the five major world religions
•student packet that includes the assignments and a grading rubric
