    Webquest for Mr. Crawford's Human Geography
                   Class: Religion

This webquest aims to help students to gain a better understanding of
the following: relationships between religion and geography; how
religions shape the geographical landscape; and how geography affects
religion. This activity is based around the key issues in Chapter Six of
your Human Geography textbook: Distributions of Religion, Diffusions
of Religion, Religious Spaces, and Religious Conflict.


The class will be divided into five groups--one for each major world
religion. You will be given a religion to examine for which you will
have specific questions to answer. The questions will be given to you at
the start of class. Use the links to your religion below to help you
complete the assignment. Please write out complete answers.
                       World Religions Webquest


Section One: Religious Distribution
Where do the adherents of this religion live?

Section Two: Religious Diffusion
What and where is the origin of your religion?

Section Three: Worship Spaces
Does your religion have a pilgrimage site? Where is it? What is the
significance of that location?

Section Four: Religious Conflict
Who or what is your struggle? Is it the government, a rival religion?

How would you (the student) solve this conflict?
