Interfaith Explorers is a resource designed to promote mutual respect through greater understanding of different faiths. Students are presented with a challenge from Professor Khalili to found out more about the Abrahamic faiths. The learning unit then suggests a number of teacher-led classroom activities and independent research activities to introduce key vocabulary and support students to achieve a number of ‘I Can…’ statements. The unit focuses on RE and PSHE and also makes some cross-curricular links to English, mathematics, art, design and technology, history and geography. Further support is available to teachers in the form of webinars.


A note about our third-party resources 

Third-party resources are those not created directly by the Educate Against Hate team, or by the Department for Education. All third-party resources hosted on Educate Against Hate have undergone a quality-assurance process, a due diligence assessment and content review before being added to the site, so you can have confidence that you’re using trusted, accurate, high-quality content.  

You should use any resources on this website at your own discretion. When selecting resources and materials to use, schools may find it helpful to review guidance produced by the Department for Education on using external agencies.
