Is death the end? Is there any evidence for an afterlife? Is death a consequence of sin but with hope of a risen life, as Christians say? Or is it all about karma leading to rebirth, as Buddhists believe? A look at Christian and Buddhist views on the afterlife.
Students could draw a poster or information leaflet about the suggestions that have been put forward about what happens to someone after they die. They should use the beliefs of several religions as well as an atheist perspective of no afterlife. Discuss whether belief in what happens afterlife is important and if it has an effect on people’s behaviour.
