Describe the Resource:
Objectives: To correctly identify the good and bad deeds. To engage in discussion regarding sin and how we advise as Muslims. To understand that we all have flaws and we are all capable of making mistakes but how we deal with it is what defines us.
Set up: 4 groups of 3-4.
Flashcards – The flashcards are prompts for the acting. Each group is given one red card (bad deed) and one green card (good deed). They are not allowed to show their cards to any other group. They must then act out their cards using their own scenarios.
The audience is asked to write down (in the worksheet) what they think the activity is that’s being acted out.
Once completed, and each group has performed their cards, there is a class discussion. Taking it in turns to answer, each bad deed is replaced with a better deed, leaving one final bad deed. The more advanced students will be able to answer why the better deed is in fact better.
The point is to illustrate the fact we all sin but as the good deeds are longer then the bad deeds, inshaAllah everyone will receive the book in their right hand.
The discussion can then move onto relate to real life scenarios with critical thinking questions guided by the teacher: Have you ever come across someone doing a bad deed? What was your initial thought? How would you feel if someone caught you doing a bad deed?
