World Religion Bundle

World Religion Bundle

This is my world religion bundle. It has images of different religions and the different religious symbols. It is a nice one to use to compare and contrast different religions, their places of worship and styles of dress. The images could be used as part of a display or to stimulate a conversation in the classroom.
