Holy War AQA 9-1 GCSE (Religion, Peace and Conflict 6.6)

Holy War AQA 9-1 GCSE (Religion, Peace and Conflict 6.6)

In this research lesson students will use IT facilities along with a highly structured lesson to explore real world examples of Holy War. They will examine teachings from both Christianity and Islam and identify religious justifications for war. They will also explore how Holy War might be a more complex issue when we take into account the non-religious causes of the war. They will be guided to create an outstanding Q5 answer to Holy War and analyse a model essay to help prepare them for writing their own. The lesson was designed for use with the new AQA Religious Studies A - 'Relationship, Peace and Conflict'. It will, however, work with any specification including Holy War. Target grade is 7-9. Ready to teach this lesson includes: - Full Lesson Plan - PowerPoint - Worksheets (including teacher answer sheet) - Model Q5 answer

Diva Lamp Craft Activity Diwali Hinduism

Diva Lamp Craft Activity Diwali Hinduism

These look very effective as a wall display if you give a choice of bright colours for the lamps. The download is a PDF with instructions and templates for the lamps and flames. Top tip provide the glitter glue in the small plastic shot glasses you find in pound shops and give them cotton buds to apply it with. You only need to provide a tiny amount of glitter glue and it can all get binned at the end of the lesson ;)
