SRSP 7-11 Unit 4 Many maps, same place
Sometimes science and religion are seen as giving opposing explanations for phenomena and events.
This unit explores what we do when we explain things, and how different kinds of explanations are suited to different kinds of questions. Logical argument is introduced and its uses and limitations considered.
Pupils are encouraged to interpret a Hindu analogy about pathways to knowledge, and relate it to their own lives.
This unit consists of four lessons and is suitable for pupils aged from 9-11 years.
- Why did the Titanic sink?
- Many maps, one place?
- Are you a logical thinker?
- Many paths, one peak?
