Make sure you know how to spell these words and what they mean!
How We Organise Ourselves.
Central Idea: The diversity of the world is connected through our beliefs and values.
We all want to hear about you and your family’s beliefs and values. Please prepare a short presentation, (3 minutes maximum), about your religion or beliefs and values, to present to the class. Please bring in any artefacts you would like to share with the class.
Your presentation could include the following:
· Values your family respect.
· Prayer and special books
· Morals and rules.
· Place of worship and special clothing.
· Founder and where and when it began.
· Religious Holidays or Festivals.
· Special days important to your family
· Afterlife or Mortality.
· Anything else you feel may be relevant
Interview your parents to answer some of the above points, but remember this is your work, to be presented in your own words.
The presentations will take place between 16 - 20 MAY!
Now that you've stood in front of the X-Factor panel, you need to write an individual reflection. Create a document named "X-Factor Reflection - Bobby (write your name)" and make sure you answer the questions below. Be sure to put your reflection in your Exhibition Google Drive folder.
It's a big week as we head towards our X-Factor presentations. The X-Factor will take place on Monday, 11 APR in the IST Boardroom. Each Exhibition group will have 10 minutes to present their planned action to a panel of unknown judges who will critique them and approve or disapprove of their action. Your action should be manageable, achievable, personable and sustainable. Be ready, and remember to dress your part!
