  1. Each person in the group will choose to be one of the three Religious Leaders. (Islamic, Jewish or Christian)
  2. Begin your Web Quest by going to the Task Page of the Web Quest, and reviewing your task as a Religious Leader
  3. Visit the three specified cities using the Internet Links on the Resource Page, and search for information on your religion. Do not download the information from these sites. You must copy and paste the information on your religion to a Word (or Pages) document. Do not print anything directly from a web site.
  4. Gather your information regarding; Religious Shrines in the three Cities, Religious Feast Days or Holy Days, Special Customs or Traditions, and Role of Women in your faith.
  5. Design a Post Card for one of the three cities you visited. Put the information you found along with a picture that would represent this city or your religion on the front of your Post Card, and a summary of the above information.
  6. Once you and your fellow Religious Leaders have completed your Web Quest of the three cities and your Religions, and have finished your Post Card, you need to begin your paper.
  7. As a group you will combine your information on all 3 religions. Individually you will write an essay that compares and contrast the three religions. You must compare the religions in at least three ways. It may be helpful if you brainstorm for categories that all three religions share. For example, you may choose to compare the symbols, place of worship and holy days of all three religions. You must include ways in which each religion is similar or different on each point. Before you write your paper review the suggestions for writing a comparison contrast essay. How to write a comparison / contrast essay.
  8. Your essay must be typed and include a working bibliography for all resources used. Remember you may not download any information found at the site, you must open up your Word (or Pages) document and cut and paste pertinent information. Final print copy should be creatively written in your own words.
