You can teach about world religions! Research shows that teaching World Religions to kids reduces rates of bullying and increases tolerance of religious differences.

How can this unit be for elementary school?
Teaching a world religions curriculum at the elementary level is one way to decrease and prevent bullying and religious intolerance. Research shows that adults severely underestimate children’s ability to process big topics, like skin color, gender, sexuality, and yes – religion. Children are perceptive. They notice prejudices and stereotypes far younger than most adults believe. In this study, children as young as 3-months-old perceive differences in appearance. By 3-years-old, children associate appearances with negative stereotypes. Since religions are closely tied with ethnicity and appearance, children are building belief systems about religion and religious differences from an early age. On the other hand, having children grapple with important topics early on can combat biases and prejudices later in life. Early intervention is the key to reducing religious bullying, intolerance, and discrimination in school.
Flipbooks are written at a 3-5th grade reading level, while Digital Adventures are interactive and suitable for all ages. If you teach early elementary, I recommend reading and guiding your students through the flipbooks. They will do great!
