In the new Studies of Asia Big Card Sets, eight countries of Asia are explored through four themes—‘The Environment’, ‘Beliefs’, ‘Innovations’ and ‘Symbols, Patterns and Designs’. Each card features a richly illustrated map and photographs depicting the theme.

Explore aspects of the countries of Asia by drawing on visual understandings, supported by teacher guided learning activities. The cards encourage small group, shared investigations, and contain stimulus for higher-order thinking and discussion.

A Teacher Guide contains commentary on the photographs, student learning activities for each set and blackline masters, including outline maps of the eight countries.

Images of Asia: Beliefs

The rainbow colours of a Lantern Festival in Seoul, the thrill of a Chinese Dragon Dance and the traditional rituals of a Toraja Hanging Cave in Indonesia illustrate the diversity of religion in countries of Asia. Places of worship, festivals, ceremonies and celebrations, and places of special significance are depicted. The curriculum focus is SOSE, but can extend to The Arts and Personal Development, and would be ideal in discussions of tolerance.
