Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to demonstrate the importance of Muhammad (pbuh) as a messenger of God and the passing of his words. Key words should be noted. The teacher could hand out a set of simple questions related to the clip to one half of the class and the answers to the other half. Pupils would then have to try and find their pair. Questions should be clear and precise. "Where did Muhammad live? How many Gods did people use to worship? What was Muhammad's wife's name? What is the Koran?" To finish, children could read their questions and answers to the rest of the class.
