Hinduism: Diwali

‘Hindu Festivals: Diwali’ is the third lesson of the unit ‘Exploring Hinduism’ (unit plan can be found here and the complete unit of study here) and it is designed to last 1-2 periods. ‘Hindu Festivals: Diwali’ complements ‘Diwali Fun Activity Pack’ and ‘Diwali Jigsaw Puzzles’. The resource contains a PowerPoint to give structure to lessons, a flip chart with engaging activities for students and worksheets. The animation added to all slides helps teachers to pause whenever necessary to explain, expand or clarify any questions pupils may have. Should the teacher want to add other pieces of information which he/she thinks is relevant Diwali or to change the order of slides, the PowerPoint is fully editable to allow all of these. There is a mixture of stimulating and attractive activities which ensure high-quality learning experiences for all students: give me 5; think pair share, missing words activity, class discussions, drawing Rangoli patterns etc. There are many opportunities for class discussions to encourage young people to present their own opinions and respect the views of others. All activities are clearly linked to success criteria and they proved to be very successful in helping pupils consolidate their knowledge and understanding of Diwali. I have included a sample of pupils’ feedback which was very positive. At the end of this topic you can celebrate pupils’ success with one of these certificates. <strong> This resource contains</strong>: ✶ Cover ✶ Teacher Notes (including learning objectives, ways of differentiating, detailed instructions on how and when to use this resource and printing tips) ✶ PowerPoint Presentation (fully editable and with animation) ✶ Flipchart Interactive Activities ✶ Worksheets ✶ TOU/Credits <strong> Page Count</strong>: 42 <strong>Related Resources</strong> All puzzles All Hinduism Resources
