Reformation and Counter-Reformation Unit Theme Park Summative Project

Procedures: Your class will be put into a group of four representing one of the following denominations:

  • Roman Catholicism,

  • Lutheranism,

  • Calvinism,

  • the Church of England (under Henry VIII)

Each person will design their own portion (quadrant) that makes up a fourth of a theme park map featuring rides,

restaurants, concession stands, etc.
Your task is to work not only with your denomination, but with the other three people to make sure that all four quadrants of your theme park connect together and make sense.
Each group will be given one piece of butcher paper and will design, label and illustrate the following:
1. Title your quadrant (poster board) as something that makes sense for your denomination ex: ‘Calvin Land’
2. Name, design, and label the following and place them in your quadrant:


  • 3 large rides,

  • 4 small rides,

  • 2 restaurants,

  • 3 concession stands.

Make sure that your rides, restaurants, etc. represent at least one of the following…

  • leaders

  • events

  • theology

  • religious practices/discipline/education.

Consult with the other group members and design interconnecting pathways, lawns and shrubbery, and a main

entrance (all four groups must agree and decide upon the entrance’s main title).
3. In the dead center of your theme park’s map where all four quadrants meet you will need a landmark building (like Walt Disney World’s Castle) that represents some concept that all four denominations have in common and would tie into all four religious traditions. All four group members must consult with each other and come up with a common concept and create a center building for your theme park and place it in the center where all four poster boards meet.
4. Each person will complete a 3X5 index card that explains all of your quadrant’s rides, restaurants, and concession stands. List each feature of your quadrant and explain in 3-4 sentences the historical detail and significance of each.
