Hindu Festivals - Complete Teaching Resources: [Maha Shivaratri , Ganesh Chaturthi,  Raksha Bandhan, Diwali, Holi, Navratri, Kumbha Mela] KS3 and KS4 GCSE

This download is designed for AQA and OCR specifications but relevant to all GCSE Hinduism Religious Studies teachers . It is also perfectly fine for use with KS3 classes.

The download includes:
-A selection of 14 lessons (referring to 7 different Hindu festivals)
-Lesson Plans (where necessary)

Each festival can be taught using one or two different approaches included:

  1. A video and documentary based approach based around a (rather beautiful, if I do say so myself) A3 Worksheet. [Includes PPT, Worksheet and Lesson Plan]

  2. An ICT Suite ‘Research, Present & Quiz’ approach, which includes integrated peer-assessment. [Includes PPT and Worksheet, Lesson Plan not necessary as it’s such a straightforward approach].

The download includes both of these approaches for each festival (14 sessions in total)

Festivals includes are:
Diwali, Holi, Navratri, Kumbh Mela, Maha Shivaratri , Ganesh Chaturthi, and Raksha Bandhan
