Five Pillars of Islam Counting Cards. Can your children skip count? Here is a good Ramadan activity that helps children practice skip counting while learning about the Five Pillars of Islam.
These math activities are simple, fun and easy to put together. Children learn about Ramadan, Islam, the Muslim belief and practice a bit of math along the way.
I am in love with my laminator these days. It is one the best investments that I have made this year. I bought it for the special purpose of creating kids activities. My kids are really happy to be getting up each morning and finding a new activity waiting for them.
This Ramadan activity is about teaching children about the Five Pillars of Islam and at the same time learning to skip count and sequence. I have made six puzzles that help children to learn :
- The Five Pilars of Islam
- Skip count in 2s
- Skip count in 3s
- Skip count in 5s
- Skip count in 10s
- Skip count in 100s
There are quite a few ways to play with these cards. You can give them one puzzle at a time and use it to discuss the picture or they can concentrate on the math activity.
What are the Five Pillars of Islam:
Muslims believe in the Five Pillars of Islam which means they have 5 things that make up their religion.
- Shahadah: Proclamation that there is one God and that Prophet Muhammad is the last messenger to be sent by God.
- Salah: Which means prayer. A Muslim must pray 5 times a day.
- Sawm: Fasting in the month of Ramadan.
- Zakat: Which means compulsory giving of charity from your earning.
- Hajj: Pilgrimage to Makkah (in Saudi Arabia) at least once in a life time.
Muslims fast in Ramadan because it is one of the fundamentals that makes up their religion. When you teach children about Ramadan, I hope this activity will help you explain to them what the Five Pillars are.
