On the sixth day, God said, “I command the earth to give life to all kinds of tame animals, wild animals, and reptiles. And that’s what happened. God made every one of them. Then he looked at what he had done, and it was good.”
The children heard these words during worship on Tuesday morning, and began to think about all of the animals that God made. During the Sky Class morning meeting, the children were challenged to name as many animals as they could. Naturally, this led to a discussion of what each child’s favorite animal was.
The children began to think about how these animals could be a beautiful addition to our growing creation collage and so, the research began!
After thinking about an animal that they would like to create, the children conducted research by looking through books to help them find images of these animals and what they look like.
Once they studied the pictures of their chosen creature, they needed to think about the materials that would be needed to recreate them. What shapes make up the animals body? Is the animal just one color, or is it made up of many colors? Answering these questions helped the children to make a plan for their work. Next, it was time to create!
The children took their time carefully examining pictures, cutting shapes, adding details, and doing lots of gluing.
Now, some of the animals have begun to be a part of the creation collage! The children chose all different types of animals, showing the wide range of God’s wonderful creation.
Come back next week to see what else has been added to the creation collage, and what God did on the last day!
