And it was very good…

God saw what He created.

And God said “It was very good.”

The students in grade one have been learning about the Creation story.  They have come to understand that we areGod’s greatest Creation and that God asks us to take care of all Creation. 

Students listened to the Creation story through Godly Play.  They were given the opportunity to respond to the story through drawing, creating a collage, singing, writing a prayer and retelling the story.

Students particularly enjoyed creating their own Creation cards to retell the story to a partner.  They also enjoyedusing art and craft materials to create a collage depicting the days of Creation.

Students also reflected upon and identified ways of looking after Creation and others.
