L.O. to discuss beliefs in context

SC4) I know what a mandir is and what murtis are;

Tricky: Complete the tasks.
Trickier and Trickiest: While describing Hindu beliefs, make comparisons with Christianity (and/or other faiths). How are they similar and how are they different.
Task 1) Watch my video lesson. Take notes and present what you have learned about Hinduism. While you write facts about Hinduism down, also say how you think Hindu beliefs help Hindus try to live their lives in a positive way.
Task 2) Watch the two BBC videos about Hinduism, focusing mostly on the second one (see below).
Task 3) Write in more depth about Hindu beliefs in God based on the second video. How do Hindus worship?
