The Creation Story

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Deborah O'Hara

I adapted the game of Charades to the help children to learn about the seven days of Creation.

After teaching the Bible story of creation and reviewing the seven days and what was created each day, I divided the group up in groups of two. I put the numbers on a piece of paper to correspond to the 7 days of creation, using each number twice and placed them in a bowl.

Each group of partners had to pick a number from the bowl and then discuss in pairs for 10 minutes how they would act out what was created to get the other teams to answer correctly. No words could be said only actions.

When the correct day was answered the team who was correct had their turn to go act out their day of creation. Let all groups have at least one turn.
