Creation Day 6 - Animals and People Theme for Preschool
This Creation Day 6 - Animals and People Theme page is based on Genesis 1:24-31
"24 And God said, 'Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.; And it was so.
25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, 'Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.'
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, 'Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.'
29 Then God said, 'I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.' And it was so.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth " (Genesis 1:24-31, NIV)

Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Writing Activity Ideas for Your Creation Day 6 - Animals and People Theme!
If you don't already have these for your classroom, I HIGHLY recommend making them! You will use them all year!
Print each child's first name on the front of a name card. Print their last name on the back.
Tape a small (wallet size or smaller) picture on the card.
Laminate the cards.
Provide dry erase markers for the children to practice printing their names and their friends' names.
Point out that some friends have some of the same letters in their name as you have in yours!
EXTENSION: We use these cards for EVERYTHING! If choosing a spot at circle time becomes problematic, we will place name cards on spots and have the children find their name.
We will have games where, for our PREK children, we will hold up a name, covering the picture, and ask whose name it is.
We will sometimes hold up the card and show the picture to ask whose name and picture this is (you'd be surprised how many of your children do NOT know the names of their classmates, even 4 months into school!)
