The Creation Story: Day 1

"The Creation Story"
Day 1

Since today I was thankful for homeschool here is some of what we did in tot school ... Today our lesson was "The Creation Story" Day 1. 

We took a shoe box and painted it with black paint on the inside.  Next we put two hole in the side with one on each end but not parallel. When they first looked in the box it was black and then we placed the flashlight on the other end.  When they looked this time there was light.  They truly enjoyed this activity. * Sorry I forgot to take a picture

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning - the first day."  

Lastly, for our snack today we enjoyed Oreos which when closed they represented the darkness. However; when we opened them to reveal the cream in the middle the day or light was represented. 

I truly enjoyed the lesson today and the fact that since we are homeschooling our children are able to learn about it in a learning environment. I would love to hear any ideas that my fellow home school parents have to share.
