RE Around the World

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

Religious Education Goes Around the World in 60 Days During June and July 2015 the RE Chair, Rob Angelette, came up with a wonderful lesson theme and I wrote most of the lessons myself. That summer RE visited deities and celebrations across the globe. The virtual world tour included Italy, India, Jamaica, Japan, Morocco, China and more, with religions dating from antiquity up to the 20th century.
