Here is the story of Buddha. What does it teach us about Buddhist beliefs? Is it similar to other religious stories you know? Could you act out the story or retell it to your grown ups. Perhaps you could make a story board!
What are your beliefs? do you agree or disagree and why? Can you compare these beliefs to other religions we have learnt about in year 4 (Sikhism and Christianity)? Are they the same or different?
Lesson 2: Buddhist Places of Worship
Can you find any Buddhist temples to explore on Google Maps? Have you ever visited a Buddhist Temple? What about other religious places of worship e.g. a church? How are they the same/different? Have a go a drawing a Buddhist Temple. Perhaps you could look out for places of worship on your daily walks and take a photo to share with us.
Read the story. What does it teach us about caring for animals and the environment? Can you act out the story or make a story board?
