Festivals of Light Around the World | Career Links Course | Scoop.it
The diversity in many classrooms provides a starting point for children to begin to understand and value the many distinct cultures of the world. What better way to do that than to feature a winter unit on light festivals from around the world. Teach your students about the cultural traditions in France, Sweden, Thailand, Philippines, India, Egypt, Holland, and Mexico. More light festivals will be added so keep checking back.

The Ganges River | The Story of India - Photo Gallery | PBS

The Ganges River | The Story of India - Photo Gallery | PBS | Career Links Course | Scoop.it
For the 80% of Indians who are Hindus, the Ganges is considered sacred, the terrestrial home of the goddess Ganga, and has held a vaunted place within the faith for centuries. Hindus from all over the subcontinent make annual pilgrimages to the many temples and shrines located along its shores and believe it is auspicious to drink, bathe, and after death, have their ashes scattered in the river. Bathing in the Ganges is a purifying ritual that is thought to wash away a penitent's sins and spreading one's ashes in the water upon death may improve one's karma and hasten salvation.
Lynn McMullan's insight:

This resource (text, photos, discussion questions etc) covers India and its religions, i.e. Hinduism, Muslim, and others.  This website has lesson plans for teachers.   This page (4) is just a small section of the resource. Click on website, go to page 4 and 'show all'.  Click on discussion questions.  I have printed the notes (in file) for an example.
