Religions of the World. This Religions of the World packet will help you help your students to understand the birth, marriage, and death ceremonies/rituals of the five major religions in the word - Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism
. Much of the hatred in the world comes from a lack of understanding. Hopefully this will help make your students more knowledgeable and understanding about different religious beliefs.
This could be done as an individual assignment or as a jigsaw activity where students collaborate and choose a religion then come together and teach each other what they've learned.
