Buddhism the Three Marks of Existence

Buddhism the Three Marks of Existence

Linked to the previous lesson (available for free) This unit explores Buddhism by first looking at the primary concepts. This is the second lesson and it focuses on the three marks of existence. The mandala they have created as homework from the previous lesson are torn in half, used as a way of experiencing this concept of the first mark, anicca. It is an engaging lesson, punctuated by GCSE style thinking and writing questions.

RE GCSE AQA Exam Skills Tutorial - Q4

RE GCSE AQA Exam Skills Tutorial - Q4

A two sided tutorial showing students how to answer the 5 marker question 4, on teachings. This one was developed within the Religion, Peace and Conflict unit so the example is on forgiveness, but that could be changed. I have also included this sheet in the lesson that I have for sale in this unit called L4 Just War and Holy War.

This resource is an A4 sheet containing key words and Buddhist teachings for anyone teaching a unit on Buddhism. Students can stick it their books at the beginning of the topic and then be used as a reference point throughout the topic - minimising photocopying which is great when RE departments rarely get a good sized budget!

Focuses on the construction and deconstruction of mandalas, as well as the spiritual importance they play within the religion of Buddhism.
