This can be used as a starter or as a main activity.


The diamond has 9 statements related to Salah. Students have to read, discuss and then order them in order of importance. There isn’t necessarily a correct order but students can debate and discuss then order the statements. Teachers can print out copies for students to cut, order and stick into exercise books. The Powerpoint can be used by the teacher for class discussions or for presentations by students. The Powerpoint also has a timer that can be used to time the activity.
