Creation Day 6
Let's read from God's Word, the bible, and see what else He created. To help you understand, we can read some verses and then explain what it means.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(That means that God created all the animals you see that walk or creep along the ground. We will post some pictures when we're all done for you to see some examples and maybe you will think of more.)
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
(God's Word teaches us that God then created man and woman. He created them to be in charge of all the animals on the earth, in the sea and in the air.)
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
(God told them to multiply, that means to have babies.)
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
(God then tells man and woman that He gave them food through all the plants that He made.)
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
(God also says that the plants were food for the animals also.)
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Let's look at some pictures of animals and creatures that creep along the ground.
Do you know the names of these animals? Maybe you can think of many more.
