  4. 4. THE CREATION STORY <ul><li>In the beginning the world was dark and formless.There was no life and no one to care for the earth. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 1 st Day <ul><li>Then God said, “let there be light” and there was light. He separated the light from the darkness and called the light ‘Day’ and the darkness he called ‘Night’. Night went and day came, this was the first day. I can relate this to my life because I need to have a rest each night after being at school and working all day. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 2 nd Day <ul><li>Then God said “let there be a dome to cover over all the land”. He called the dome the ‘Sky’ and he wanted to have water in the sky and under the sky, so that is what was done. Now, when I look up at the sky I see that it is home to all birds that can fly. </li></ul>
  7. 7. 3 rd Day <ul><li>God said, “let the water below the sky </li></ul><ul><li>come together and let dry land appear. Dry land appeared, the land was a divider for the water, he called the water ‘Sea’ and the dry land ‘Earth’. I walk upon my home the earth each day, at its edge is the sea. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 3 rd Day Continued <ul><li>Then God said “let the land produce all different types of plants and flowers and let wheat and all other kind of fruits and foods grow” and that is exactly what happened. Night went and day came and that was the third day. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 4 th Day <ul><li>Then God said “let there be two bigger lights so that you can tell all the different events and all of the seasons” the Sun and Moon formed. Night went and day came, this was the fourth day. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 5 th Day <ul><li>Then God said “let the water below the sky be filled with all different types of fish and creatures”. He included sharks, whales and many different fish. He created many kinds of birds to fill the sky.This was the fifth day. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 6 th Day <ul><li>Then God said, “let the land produce all different types of of animals, domestic and wild. He told all the animals to reproduce and soon there was a life cycle. Each day as I look around this world God has created I see many of God’s creatures great and small. </li></ul>
  12. 12. 6 th Day Continued <ul><li>But God felt something was missing so he added Man and Woman to enjoy and take care of all he had created. Today we have the responsibility to care for the Earth and all God has created. We need to keep it safe for future generations. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 7 th Day God looked around and saw what he had made and he was happy. In just six days the whole universe was complete. On the seventh day God rested and enjoyed looking at all he created. We have the opportunity each day to enjoy what God created with work, play and rest!

  19. 19. Creation <ul><li>Everything in the world has a purpose and meaning they are all functional and aesthetic </li></ul>
  21. 21. MY PLACE IN CREATION <ul><li>God made humans on the 6th day he gave us a job and made them care takers of the earth. We have to love and care for the animals and all other living things. We have to do the right thing and help the animals. </li></ul>
  22. 22. HELPING GODS CREATION <ul><li>(1).You can donate money to the RSPCA and take better care of all your pets. You need to make sure they have water, food and, if it is a dog, walk it and give it love and care.This is taking care of Gods’ Creation because we are showing God we care for his Creation and that we are responsible for it. God created humans and gave them a role to play. If we care for Gods Creation it will be there for future generations. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>(2). You should dispose of rubbish properly and not pollute, instead you should find the closest bin and dispose of your rubbish correctly. If you don’t, it could go into the water and an animal could choke, and maybe die. This would not be caring for Gods’ Creation, God gave us a job and he made humans responsible for the environment and expected us to do the right thing. God trusted us, make him proud! </li></ul>HELPING GODS CREATION
  24. 24. HELPING GOD’S CREATION . <ul><li>(3).Join a group like W.I.R.E.S that helps injured or hurt wild animals. They might have been on the side of the road and been hit by a car or motor bike. You can help W.I.R.E.S, if you see a hurt animal on the side of the road, pick it up and call 1800 W.I.R.E.S and they will tell you the closest W.I.R.E.S volunteer and you can take the animal to get help. </li></ul>
  25. 25. ACTION PLAN <ul><li>GOAL: To show that I am responsible and care about the environment and that I want to help our home the Earth – to make the world a better place. </li></ul>
  26. 26. PUTTING MY PLAN INTO ACTION <ul><li>1. Action: Join bush care group or even participate in plant a tree.This will help the environment because it will increase the amount of trees in the world. This will make God happy. </li></ul>
