Religions Timeline

This lesson is the first in a set of seven designed to introduce pupils to the six of the major world religions. In this lesson, pupils will look at a timeline of the origins of religion, be tasked to recreate this timeline themselves (There are differentiated worksheets and a help sheet for lower ability pupils.) They will also have to colour a map of where the religions began.

There are links to 2 videos within this PPT. The second gives and overview of 5 world religions. The sixth pupils have to research for homework.
