Year 2 students engage in the retrieval of information, reading and research, analysis and documentation of data and information, making comparisons and coming to conclusions about the questions they pursue in the unit.
The unit builds on students' previous explorations of Christianity and introduces them to the world of other religions, specifically Hinduism. It links with an integrated studies unit on India which was running concurrently. Throughout the unit students focus on four questions relating to features of Hinduism, similarities and differences between Christianity and Hinduism, reasons for celebration, and the celebration of Christmas.
