Activities

1. This lesson is about different kinds of religious clothing. Some people wear special kinds of clothing because their religion requires or recommends it. Listen to a few terms and definitions of some common religious clothing pieces (Common Religious Clothing Table ).

With a partner, discuss the following questions:
·        Do you know of any other kinds of religious clothing?
·        Have you ever seen someone wearing religious clothing? Where were you?
·        If you and your partner can think of any other kinds of religious clothing, use the blank spaces in the table to record those.

2. In small groups, create a poster that shows some of the common religious clothing you learned about today. Make sure your poster clearly describes the piece of clothing and the religion with which it is associated. Also include a picture of the religious clothing.

3. For the Classroom Walk, each group should hang its poster up in a different part of the classroom and stand beside it. Each group should then move clockwise around the room visiting every other group’s poster. As you look at each group’s poster, discuss the following questions:
·        How did this group illustrate the  cross, hijab, turban and yarmulke?
·        Are the pictures and descriptions accurate? Why or why not?
·        Do the posters show each of these pieces of religious clothing in a respectful way?
·        When all groups have had a chance to view all posters, the class should provide one positive comment about each poster. Record all comments on the board.

Comments

Özlem Bulut (Class teacher): „ The topic of the lesson is not easy for understanding due to the early age of pupils, but in my opinion the lesson was very interesting and motivating to children. I suppose their perception of religion and its role in society has changed. Perhaps some of them began to think about the phenomena they had previously had no idea. “

Melike Özkan (student, 4-A class): „I don´t practise religion in my life and I have never thought about this topic before. But after this lesson my attitudes to it changed quite a lot. I have learnt new facts about different religions and their impact on modern society. It was very interesting for me. “
