Sunday School Creation: Birds and Fish

Sunday School – Creation Day 5: Birds and Fish

I’d like to begin with an apology to everyone who has been waiting for me to continue with the Creation series. Due to family and work commitments, I had to put blogging on hold for a while, but I am back this week to show you what my little dears and I did for Day 5 of Creation.

We started by talking about what God had created on the previous days. I brought out the Darkness and Light sensory bottles from Day 1, the Clouds and Ocean sensory bottle from Day 2, the Land and Plants sensory bottle from Day 3 and the Sun, Moon and Stars sensory bottles from Day 4 and we talked about what was in each one and.

I then brought out the sensory bottles for Day 5 and I asked my little dears to try and guess what God had created…

This bottle shows the sky and the different birds that God created. (As I didn’t have enough big bird pictures/stickers to put in, I added some butterfly ones… I know butterflies weren’t created on Day 5, but my kiddos got the idea that God made “things with wings” on  this particular day to fly across the sky).

Then I brought out the second bottle and we talked about the different fish and sea creatures that God also created. The kids absolutely loved this second bottle: I put in some small sea shells and blue and clear gems and they made the most delightful sound as the bottle was turned upside down.

We then checked to make sure that our answers were correct by reading from our Creation Story Book.

We then played a sorting game with some sensory tubs that I made up for my little dears. (Click any of the pictures below to get the FREE printables.)

I filled the first sensory tub with blue Easter grass and some white cotton balls.

For the ocean sensory tub, I filled it up with some blue water beads, different coloured shells and some plastic fish tank grass.

My kids had lots of fun playing with the contents and sorting the different creatures to their correct tub.

We wrapped up our lesson with two paper plate crafts.

    What do you use for the “liquid” in the sensory bottles?

  5. Nicole says:

    So glad I found your blog. I’ve purchased items from your TeachersPayTeachers store, but was thrilled to see your Sunday School lessons. Such an awesome free resource. Thank you thank you!

    Hi for the sea life bottle what exact mini sea creatures did you use. Do they float? I got plastic ones and they sank 🙁 do you also have some laminated fish? Also how do you get glitter glue to mix with water? Even with hot (from tap) water I can’t get it to mix. This would thicken the water and increase bouyancy

    • Lavinia Pop says:

      Melissa, I used small plastic stickers and they stayed floating for a short time before sinking. I had no trouble mixing the glitter glue with water; it might work better if you use clear Elemer’s glue with water and then sprinkle in some glitter afterwards. I hope this helps 🙂
