History-World Religions

 Since religion is a shaping force in the story of civilization, Core Knowledge introduces children in the early grades to major world religions. The focus is on geography, major symbols, and figures. The purpose is not to explore matters of theology, but to introduce basic vocabulary for understanding many events in history. The goal is to familiarize not proselytize. To the question, “Which is true?” our response will be “people of different faiths believe different things to be true. The best people to talk to about this are your parents.”

Students will learn: 

  • What different people believe
  • Religions as the basis of significant events and ideas in world history
  • Judaism: Belief in one God, Exodus, Isreal, Chanukah, Star of David, Torah, and Synagogue
  • Christianity: Developed from Judaism, Jesus as the Messiah, Christmas, Easter, Symbol of the cross
  • Islam: Origin in Arabia, Allah, Muhammad, Makkah, Qur’an, Mosque, and symbols of crescent and star
