My Own Parable

My Own Parable

This lesson was created for use in a KS3 Buddhism unit but could easily work in any RS unit of work, or indeed a PSHE unit. It tells the story of a young lady at an airport who jumps to the wrong conclusion when she doesn't have all the facts. It's told through a series of pictures and is a beautiful was to reinforce the message that a parable can be a highly effective way of getting across an important message. The pupils then have to create their own parables (there is a guide and some ideas to help them). This lesson can easily be extended to two or three lessons with extension activities (such as turning it into a role play, or making it a cartoon, or a presentation). A fun, fascinating and fantastic lesson.
