About This Lesson

The Grade 1 Core Knowledge History and Geography unit, Three World Religions, explores the history of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, three major religions that developed in the same part of the world and share a belief in one god.

Through teacher read-alouds, the unit introduces students to the history and basic teachings of these three important religions with a tone of respect and balance. Students will hear about the life of Moses and follow him across the Red Sea with the Jewish people as they flee from Egypt. Students will also explore the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth and the beginnings of the Christian faith. Finally, they will find out about the beginnings of the Islamic faith through the life and teachings of the prophet Muhammad.

Throughout the unit’s five chapters, students will discover many of the religious holidays, symbols, and celebrations of the three faiths.
