Additional Ideas for Sikh Awareness Presentations

In addition to the Sikh Awareness presentation, here are a few ideas that can help engage your audience.

Ages 8-11:

Ages 4-7:

If you are delivering a presentation to a class of students below age 8, we suggest reading a book and leading a discussion with students instead of a Powerpoint presentation.

Some suggestions:

  • Read a book to the class, and extract a few key points about Sikhism to have a discussion with the kids. The books we recommend can be found by clicking here. Use the information to expand on certain aspects of Sikhi, or explain 1 or 2 major concepts in Sikhi that were not discussed in the book. For example, vand ke chakna (sharing with your fellow students, siblings, etc.) and kirt karni (always living and working in an honest way) would be good ones that are easily translatable to kids’ lives.
  • Demonstrate turban, patka, and/or braid-tying to helps dispel myths about what’s under the turban. As a Sikh student to serve as a volunteer. Sometimes the kids might feel shy about opening their hair in front of the class, which is totally understandable. In those situations, if you really want to do a demonstration, then perhaps you can bring in an outside volunteer to help.
  • Lead a question-and-answer session.
