Hindu Deities: Ganesha
A visual and creative lesson which can be adapted to suit all abilities and all Key Stages, but is especially effective at GCSE level. Focusing on the symbolism of the Hindu Deity Ganesha and how he links to the overall concept of Brahman in Hinduism. Includes a brilliant video that explores the different aspects of Brahman as well as an opportunity for students to be creative and draw and colour their own Ganesha template (lower ability) as well as to analyse the symbolism of Ganesha in more depth (higher ability). The main task allows students to explore Hindu Deities through De Bono's hats, which is a great differentiation tool.
