Sikhism: The Five K’s

Sikhism: The Five K’s

One worksheet which is double-sided and includes THREE activities about the 5 K’s in Sikhism- an essential for your topic! Activity 1- Describing the objects using a table and answering questions. I used the real objects but you could easily substitute simple fact cards of comprehension text. Activity 2- Research focused. Activity 3- Where are the 5 K’s found on the body? My class thoroughly enjoyed this lesson and so was then carried out in other parts of the school. I found that Sikhism resources were hard to find and this ticks the boxes!
