Activity 3: Religious Diversity Today

Ask students to guess how many different religions are practiced in the Commonwealth today; then consult the Pluralism Project website for the answer.

Have students make a list of the places of worship in town. Which ones are in their neighborhood? Which ones do they pass on their way to school? Have students look in the local yellow pages to add to or confirm their list.

Ask students how freedom of religion affects our lives. How is freedom of religion protected in the United States?
