Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

RE

This is our final week of learning about the five pillars of Islam. The final word to add to your pillars is Hajj.  This is all about the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. All Muslims try to make this pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime, depending on their circumstances.

Please read through the slides with a grown up and talk about the different stages. Then, try the quiz at the end and add the final word to your five pillars.
