BUILDING BACKGROUND/CONNECTION TO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE:
Pupils are familiar with the topic in their previous classes.
The planet earth which we now live on was not always like this. There was a time when it was shapeless and empty. There were no plants or trees, no rivers, no animals and no human beings. In fact, the earth was dark as there was also no sun, no moon or stars. God used six days to create the earth and nature as we know it. The whole of creation is a sign of God’s love. He created light first and that is how day and night began. The second day God created the sky. The third day, God created the land, the seas, planets and trees. On the fourth day, he created the sun, the moon, and the stars. And then the birds and sea animals were created on the fifth day. On the sixth day, God created the rest of the animals – those that live on land. On that same day, God created man.
Now, when God created man, he made him special. Man is God’s excellent creation. He made man to be just like himself. That means that man was made to resemble God. This does not mean that man’s face looks like God’s. It means God made man a spirit being just like God is a spirit being.
