Researching real people who practice Hinduism, Hindu deities, or legendary figures from Hindu texts and mythology help students to gain greater insight into this fascinating religion. It helps students go beyond simply memorizing facts to acquire a more substantial view of Hinduism and its followers. In this activity, students will create a biography poster for one person relating to Hinduism. Teachers can assign students a specific person or they may give students a choice.
These posters can be printed out, laminated, and hung around the room as a visual reminder of notable people from the time of Hinduism. Students can also present their posters to their classmates, sharing their knowledge about their person, thus combining research, writing and public speaking skills into one powerful assignment.
