Students discuss the different religions that make up the world today. They complete an interest inventory about their belief systems and the influence it has had on their lives. In groups of two, then four, then eight they discuss their responses and share their conclusions with the remainder of the class.
Although this world religion word search offers little academic value, it includes several lesser-known religious terms (including Confucianism, Tripitaka, and Rig Veda), some of which are difficult for learners to spell. In that sense, this word search exposes learners to difficult words and practice with spelling. There is a printable version, however the header has the designer's name below it. Consider adjusting before copying for students.
