Mrs. Ball's 7th Grade Class


So, how do you begin?

First you must decide who in your group will be the Christian Leader, Islamic Leader or Jewish Leader.

Then you will use the Resource page on this webpage to gather information and pictures for your post cards for one of the following cities that you will visit as the religious leader of your group (Mecca, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem).
    Remember: You may cut and paste information found from your search but you may not download pages of information. Put the material you cut and paste on a separate Word/Pages document, edit the material, and print this out only.
You must keep a bibliography of the sites you used for pictures and information.

Each member of the group must have their own post card and information that pertains to their religion. When all the members of your group have completed their post cards it is then time to begin working on your comparison contrast paper.

Your paper will be an essay comparing and contrasting the three major religions of the Middle East.

You must include:
    * the origin of the religion
    * demographic information
    * holy days for each faith
    * what makes each religion different from or similiar to the others

Use your knowledge in your religion. You will also gather information on the two religions for which you are not a leader. You must rely on your group members for this information. Using that information complete the writing assignment.

Your summary must be typed and in 5 paragraph essay format, with an introduction, 3 paragraphs or more in the body, and a conclusion. One essay per group, but you all must write an essay - individually.

Use this step by step guide to help you write your paper.
