Introduction

Living Together: Muslims in a Changing World is a curriculum designed to supplement the early learning of students in grades 1-6. It builds upon concepts already covered in current curriculum, while incorporating aspects of Muslim culture into the classroom learning. The idea behind this integrative curriculum is to build awareness of other cultures at a young age, promote multicultural attitudes, and encourage curiosity in children, about cultures other than their own. This website serves as an overview of this curriculum, summarizing the units in each grade, and providing activities for students to work on in the classroom.
