Last night was the first night back to class. I was excited to meet my new kiddos and get back to religious education.
I always start with creation because well, that’s where we started. So much time is spent on rules, what’s expected, homework, prayers, and so on, that the lesson needs to be fairly simple. I break creation down over a couple of lessons and classes. Yesterday, I read the story of creation to them from the Bible. I stop after each day to review what was created that day.
Then, we did a cut & paste worksheet that I made for class. It’s a mat that has each day and what was created on it. So they start off by coloring what was created each day.
Next, we cut out all the different days.
Then, we glued them onto the mat and placed them in their boxes.
Here’s the final project!!
The kids had a blast!! I have a freebie for you, so that your kids can have a blast as well. If you click on the image below, you can download the simple color version of this project. I hope that the kids enjoy!!
Also, this project is available for purchase in my shop. It’s available in color and black & white, plus it has a little bit fancier borders on the mat. If you’re interested in purchasing this creation activity worksheet, please justclick here.
NOTE: This is the Catholic version based on the New American Standard (Revised Edition). This is the Bible that I use in my classroom….

One of the plans that I have for the upcoming school year is to share more photos of my products in use. I typically post pictures on Instagram or my other social media, but I’d like for you, my readers, to be able to view them as well.
One of the ways that I plan on doing this is by using my Shotbox. Shotbox is a photo light box. It makes taking images of printables and other things so easy!! You can click the ad below to check out the Shotbox and what it does. I might also add that they have some new features coming soon and I’m pretty excited about it!!
Here’s a couple photos that I took with mine, with no prep what-so-ever. I was just playing around and didn’t really set things up for a professional look. You’ll notice that I only used the blue background, but I got a set with other background colors included in it.
The Shotbox can be used with a standard camera, tablet, or cell phone. You can also adjust the amount of light. I just played with it and had a fun, so I can’t wait to do more and really put a little time and effort into using it!!
Be sure to check out the SHOTBOX for your photo light box needs and have some fun too!!
