It’s too easy to let Hajj and Eid al-Adha slip by after all the excitement and preparation done for Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. In our Muslim homeschool group, we wanted to get the kids excited while learning about Hajj and its benefits. A game of jeopardy is always a fun way to make this happen!
I found a few articles and images that would make the kids learn both about the ritual of Hajj and the benefits of Hajj, in sha Allah. After all, what’s the point of learning about Hajj if they don’t learn why we want to go? Some of the articles are at a high school reading level, so the intention is to work together on the items if the child is not at that level quite yet. Other items are simply a graphic to study, and a du’a to memorize along with the translation.
We suggested with our group that each family would put in $10 towards a prize for the winner – a gift certificate to a local Muslim store that carries clothing, home decor, jewelry, and other fun items! This is the first time we are trying to set up such a competition for our little group, so in sha Allah we have fun with it and the kids learn a lot!
So, here’s the Hajj study guide! Enjoy!
Of course, I’ve also included the Hajj jeopardy cards, which printed front and back will print perfectly, in sha Allah. Plus, it saves paper! The idea is I’ll come up with a few sets over the years and then I can just shuffle the few sets to keep things pretty fresh each year. We’ll see how far that goes, though. 🙂
And here’s the Hajj jeopardy cards! In sha Allah you enjoy them and find them useful!
