Reply to "General Creation Resources and OTHER Lessons & Ideas for Creation"

Have teachers/parents bring in digital cameras and print the photos on your computer printer or use your CELLPHONES.   You can connect your Cellphone or Digital camera to your classroom TV by way of a simple connecting cable.

Photographing the Creation Story

After studying and discussing the seven days of Creation, students go forth to PHOTOGRAPH things that represent each of the Days of Creation.  This can be as literal or as figurative as the students can imagine.  For example, instead of photographing the sun, photograph light streaming through the trees.

Give groups/students a helper to supervise the camera/cellphone, and provide suggestions. Have them come up with multiple photos for each day.

Be sure to include "sabbath" and capture images of the church or people in worship or praying or resting (all the ways people "sabbath")

Upon returning to the class, show the photos on the classroom TV by connecting the camera or cellphone to the "video in" input on the back of your TV. Use an HDMI 2 Cellphone connecting cable for your cellphone (about $15 on Amazon).

Have each student describe their photo and how they think it show the "it is good" aspect of that part of Creation. "What's so good about plants?"  About people?  About Sabbath?
