Opening- Welcome and Lesson Introduction
Begin by having the children think of something that they made. Have they helped their parents make cookies, or made a gift for a parent at school? Maybe it was a derby car for cub scouts. Ask them what was it like to make these things? Was it easy or hard? Why?
Ask students how it feels to make something creative. (We tend to love what we ourselves make, and grow from the creative process. Certainly Genesis 1 describes God's love for Creation and creative act too!)
Dive into the Software for Scripture and Activities
Go with students into Awesome Bible Story's Creation Story and complete the activities per the handout.
Take a break from the computers to briefly discuss things on their handout.
Take a moment and describe how your church describes the Creation Story and its relationship to history. Do it in an age-appropriate way. The SOFTWARE takes the point of view from the very beginning that the Creation Story is a powerful poem praising God's creative love and creation. Genesis 1 tries to convey that excitement and grandeur and LOVE of God. As the software says, "it's more important than a history."
Finish by making a "Gabby Creation Power Poem" (an interactive reflection activity in the program). This activity invites the children to playfully identity the words and excitement of the Genesis 1 scripture and put them together onscreen, then PLAY THEM for the entire class to hear.
Close by having students create a "Creation Prayer" as a group using Gabby Talker, then play the prayer for your closing prayer.
