Interfaith Materials

World Religions - Explanation Cards

$35.00

 

Children  ages 9-12 and up have an intense interest in the religions of the world. These cards can provide some answers while allowing the child to explore the signs and symbols of up to 7 different religions. The religions included are Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, and Taoism.

Each laminated set has 5-10 labeled pictures with separate description cards and labels for the child to match, much like the 3 part cards used in a Montessori Environment. Children can work independently or with others to explore these faiths of the world.

Why Interfaith Education?

Do your children have classmates or neighbors preparing for a bar/bat mitzvah? Do they have friends who wear a hijab? Do they have grandparents, aunts or uncles who practice Buddhism or Hinduism? Has news from around the world prompted questions about other religions?

Exposure to non-Christian religions is more and more common in America, and is part of the reason why interfaith education is important to older children.
