1 World Religions First, discuss and share all the information you already know about your designated religion with your group. Then, use the Internet to research more information about each of the five categories: origins, beliefs, customs, ceremonies and rituals, and religious holidays. Religion Person Building Origins Beliefs Customs Christianity Christian Church Ceremonies and Rituals Religious Holidays Islam Muslim Mosque Judaism Jew (sometimes also Practicing Jew) Synagogue Buddhism Buddhist Temple (sometimes Shrine) Hinduism Hindu Shrine (in temples, in the home, and in outdoor public spaces)

2 Five (a short film by Daniel & Katina Mercadante) While you watch the film, try to notice any similarities and differences between the children and the religious rituals you see in the film. Similarities and differences between the children: Similarities and differences between the religious rituals:

3 Religion Discussion Questions 1. What does religion mean to you? 2. Is religion a good or bad thing? 3. Do religions help people be ethical? 4. Do you think that religious people are happier? 5. Do you think religion is just superstition? 6. Do you think religion is incompatible with our modern-day world? 7. Should religion be taught in state schools? 8. Why is there conflict between different religions? 9. What do you think of the concepts of heaven and hell? 10. What would the world be like without religion?

4 The Abstract Noun Recognize an abstract noun when you see one. Nouns name people, places, and things. One class of nouns is abstract. Your five senses cannot detect this group of nouns. You cannot see them, hear them, smell them, taste them, or feel them. Cannot see Cannot hear Cannot smell Cannot taste Cannot touch Check out the following example: When Joseph dived into the violent waves to rescue a drowning puppy, his bravery amazed the crowd of fishermen standing on the dock. Bravery, one of the nouns in this sentence, is an example of an abstract noun. You can see Joseph, the water, and the crowd. But you cannot see bravery itself. Bravery has no color, size, shape, sound, odor, flavor, or texture; it has no quality that you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch. Any noun that escapes your five senses is an abstract noun. Don't confuse an abstract noun with a concrete noun. Many nouns are concrete, not abstract. Concrete nouns register on your five senses. Here is an example: Joseph cuddled the wet puppy under his warm jacket. Puppy is an example of a concrete noun. You can see a puppy, stroke its fur, smell its breath, and listen to it whine. You can even taste the puppy if you don't mind pulling dog hair off your tongue! Because a puppy will register on all five senses, puppy is a concrete noun. Look over this chart contrasting abstract and concrete nouns: Abstract Nouns deceit dedication curiosity trust relaxation Concrete Nouns the President teacher cat airplane bubble bath
