What is Religion Anyhow?

Upon coming back from break, my class began a unit on world religions. To begin, I broke them into groups, and asked them to list for me what they think are the major world religions. Here is what I got from one group:

1. Christans
2. Aitheists
3. Catholics
4. Jewish
5. Sonnians (I'm guessing they meant Sunnis?)

Luckily, other groups came up with more reasonable answers, so I know there is hope. I think many kids don't know about anything other than their own tradition, and many more don't know about any tradition at all. I can't say I'm really surprised by this.
