Hinduism Project

For a great project on Hinduism, and to learn the important vocabulary of this religion, write words related to Hinduism on pieces of paper and put them in a hat. Two kids draw a word, and then have to act it out or tell a story that illustrates that word without actually using the word, while their teammates try to guess the word. Some good words to use include:

Another good project would be to write stories, poems, or plays, or draw pictures or comics illustrating reincarnation or dharma or karma. The kids could look through newspapers for articles that seem to them to illustrate dharma or karma, too.

For the US election, check out Quatr.us' page on the Constitution. From the Revolution on, people have fought for the right to vote. In the 1800s, Andrew Jackson got poor white men the vote; the Civil War and Lincoln brought the vote to African-American men. In the 1900s, women got the vote, and Martin Luther King Jr. fought to force white people to actually let black people vote.
