Imam Ali Storybag


Lesson Objective:
To gain a brief overview of the life of our 1st Imam through visual aids.

Activity: 
Place all the objects into a bag and have the children pick out an item in turn. Use the prop to talk about how each object relates to the life of Imam Ali (as). Repeat the activity a second time but have each child recall an object from the bag and 'show and tell' to the class about what the object signifies. Older children can use the props to write their own short biography/poem about the Imam.
