Fifth Grade students have been studying the rise of civilization in the regions of the Indus and Ganges Rivers. This week, we focused on the beliefs and practices of the world’s oldest religion, Hinduism. We welcomed Preeti Kedia to our classroom to share with us her practices and beliefs, and to answer our questions. While each student prepared at least 2 thoughtful questions, her visit sparked so many questions that we ran out of time to ask them all. Students were interested in topics ranging from life cycle rituals of birth, marriage and death to what gods are favored in Mrs. Kedia’s family, what a Sanskrit prayer sounds like and where she buys all those spices she brought for us to smell!
