Design your own religion - Alternative Religions

Design your own religion - Alternative Religions

This is a terrific lesson that challenges the pupils to create their own brand new religion. The lesson can be used as a stand alone lesson, or as part of the 'Alternative Religions' SoW. The lesson sets up an imaginary world where they get the opportunity to create their own unique religion based on what they have learned from their R.S. lessons. They work in groups to complete this task, and then present it to the class. The groups will then evaluate each others presentations and relgions (for some peer assessment). This lesson could be one, two or even three lessons.

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.
