(Friend Jan 2005, suggestion # 1)
Use a sing-a-story (see TNGC, pp. 174–75) to teach about the Creation.
Have the children in each group draw pictures of that part of the Creation.
Each group will then hold up their drawings and recite together their scripture passage.
Move from group (day) one to group (day) seven.
two sing, "Because
God Loves Me" (p. 234);
After day five, sing, "All Things Bright and Beautiful" (p. 231);
After day six, sing "I Think the World Is Glorious" (p. 230);
After day seven, sing "Remember the Sabbath Day" (p. 155).
Have the children attach their pictures to a large circle representing the earth.
Sing the first verse of "My Heavenly Father Loves Me" (pp. 228–29). Point out that Heavenly Father created the world for us because He loves us.
We show our love for Heavenly Father by treating His creations with reverence.
Teach the children to protect the
resources of the earth by not wasting or littering and by respecting property.
Children can care for and be kind to animals. In a timed activity, ask the children to name as many ideas as possible of ways we use or ways we take care of water, the earth, or animals.
Sing the second verse of "My Heavenly Father Loves Me."
Bear testimony of the wonderful gift of this beautiful earth.
