Over the last few days we have been taking a closer look at Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Some of the things that we have examined are each religion’s holy books, religious leaders, beliefs, and holidays. We have had discussions about why religion began, why it has been carried on, and what role religion plays on people and on the word in general. The students brought up some amazing points including religious wars and tension between different religious groups. Today we wrapped up our notes on Islam and we began an activity where we compared and contrasted all three religions. This activity was handed in at the end of class and will be returned to the students when we begin our mini-projects next week!
