The goal is to have students read and think for themselves about the words of Genesis, Chapter 1.
There are two booklets. One contains only the words of Genesis, Chapter 1, and a few prompting questions and has room for students to write and draw. It can be used on its own. The second, optional booklet is like the first booklet but has been filled in by Pepper the Pooch based on her independent thoughts. It can be used as a way to generate discussion of both a religious and scientific nature or as something for students to critique as an assignment. There is much to debate about what is stated in Genesis, Chapter 1, and how it is understood.
The outcome is to have students know what Genesis, Chapter 1, actually says and to allow them to think and discuss what it means to them based on especially their own thoughts as well as their religious and scientific backgrounds.
The documents are in PDF, PowerPoint and Word so you can edit them. The material is suitable for all ages capable of reading and visualizing the creation of this universe. Age 7 may be the youngest at which this might be grasped.
A list of questions to generate discussion has also been included. This activity can provide insight into different ways of seeing this chapter and how much speculation there can be beyond what is actually written in Genesis, Chapter 1. To facilitate an interactive, group discussion, a PowerPoint presentation of simply the words of Genesis, Chapter 1, is also enclosed.
