Useful to compare how different faiths worship. The children could discuss where, when and how Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Christians worship. On pieces of paper write down individual statements for each faith such as: they worship in a synagogue, they remove their shoes when they arrive, their holy book is called the Bible. The children must then sort the statements into the correct faith.
