Expand Your Mind

Expand Your Mind

The world of Religious traditions brings with it a rich tapestry of mind blowing achievements. This resource is designed to re-calibrate learners perceptions of reality. Learners are presented with the awe inspiring dedication of the Shaolin Grandmaster that managed to perform the form of "One Finger Zen", the Shaivite Hindu Sadhu Amar Bharati who has held his arm in the air for over 14years (this is a tradition in the GurShishya Pranpara that can be traced back 1000's of years) and the Buddha Boy who sat in meditation under a tree for many months in Nepal. The resource then forces learners to gain a deeper understanding of Humankind by exploring the vast size of the Universe around us. Best suited to KS3, i personally use this lesson as an introduction to my teaching when I begin teaching at a new school. I have had outstanding feedback on this lesson and the way it engages learners in deep profound thought.

KS3 - Buddhism - Beliefs & Teachings

A comprehensive 51-slide PowerPoint that includes 6 lessons on Buddhist beliefs and teachings about meaning & purpose. The 6 lessons included are: 1. What do Buddhists believe about life? 2. What does Buddhism teach about suffering? 3. What is the Noble Eightfold Path? 4. What is the Wheel of Life? 5. What is Enlightenment? 6. Why are there different groups of Buddhists? I have used this with my Year 8's but it can be easily used with, and adapted for, Year 7's and 9's. Each lesson includes an engaging starter, key question, learning objectives, main information, class tasks, independent work and summary questions. The slides were designed to be as attractive as possible to students and help bring Buddhism to life.

Buddhism the Three Marks of Existence

Buddhism the Three Marks of Existence

Linked to the previous lesson (available for free) This unit explores Buddhism by first looking at the primary concepts. This is the second lesson and it focuses on the three marks of existence. The mandala they have created as homework from the previous lesson are torn in half, used as a way of experiencing this concept of the first mark, anicca. It is an engaging lesson, punctuated by GCSE style thinking and writing questions.
