Islamic Place of Worship - Teaching Ideas

The worksheet, which can be found here, consists of a cloze procedure about mosques. This can be used in a number of ways:

1) Give the children the sheet and ask them to find out the answers using various reference materials.

2) Teach the children about mosques first, and give them the sheet to test what they have remembered.

3) Write the answers on the board (in a jumbled order), and tell the children to put the answers into the correct spaces on the sheet.

The correct text is written below:

Islamic Place of Worship

The MOSQUE is the place of worship for Muslim people. Most of these have a large dome above the main prayer hall. This is because the dome helps to

ECHO THE PRAYERS AROUND THE MOSQUE.

Outside the mosque, there is a MINARET. This is a tower where the muezzin calls Muslims to prayer.

Inside the mosque there is a space to store shoes. This is because

MUSLIMS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WEAR SHOES INSIDE THE MOSQUE.

There is also a place where the Muslims can wash. This is because

MUSLIMS ALWAYS WASH BEFORE PRAYING.

There are no seats in the main prayer hall because

MUSLIMS KNEEL ON MATS ON THE FLOOR DURING PRAYER.

The CLOCKS on the wall show the times that Muslims must pray.

The QIBLA wall is a wall which faces Mecca. In this wall, there is a MIHRAB, which is a small cove pointing towards Mecca.

The minbar is a platform where the leader of the service (called the IMAM) gives his sermon.

This section may be blocked by a SCREEN. The mosque is also used as a place for

TEACHING, MEETINGS AND QUIET MEDITATION.
