Parents are to be the teachers of the children so we are offering simple posts that parents can expound upon.
In this lesson we are going to learn more about what God created, in the beginning.
Let's read from the bible (remember, that's the Word of God) and see what it says.
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
God created all the birds (the word 'fowl' means birds) and all the creatures that live in the waters.
God blessed the creatures in the waters and the fowl of the air and told them to multiply and fill the water and air. That means the males and females come together and have babies and then over time there will be so many to fill the water and the air. Look around you and see all the birds. Look in the waters and see all the fish and creatures there.
There are many different kinds of birds, let's look at some.
There are so many more birds that God created, these are just a few. Maybe you recognize some of them?
Now lets look at some sea creatures.
Let's give thanks to God who created all things!
