A young child’s interests center around things that are familiar to him. Exploring God’s creation uses the child’s natural curiosity about his world to help him learn more about God. Teach the children that God made the land, sea, and sky.
Theme Scripture: “in the begining, God made the sky and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 (ICB) Help the children remember this vers by asking them to repeat it after with simple hand motions. (shown on first page)
