Religious Studies KS3: C is for Creation Stories

Most religions have something to say about where we come from and why we really matter.

This quirky, educational animation explores the accounts of creation found in the Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, and Islamic traditions.

While these stories often disagree about how and when creation happened, they all tell us that a God was behind the scenes.

Science, on the other hand, does away with God, relying on the Big Bang Theory and Evolution to explain how the world as we know it came to be.

This engaging short film walks us through these different positions to show us that this contradiction is only apparent, and science and faith can often coexist.

This is from the series: A-Z of Religion and Beliefs

Teacher Notes

You could ask your pupils if science and religion can coexist, the class could split into groups and debate from the different perspectives.

Pupils could investigate why Jews and Christians rest on Sundays.
