7 Days of Creation Project

Since our history and science curriculmns overlap often, completing a 7 Days of Creation project was a great combination to both subjects. (Affiliate Links) We are using the Mystery of History and Christian Kids Explore Creation Science.

I found the Lego green and blue boards to be great foundations for building the 7 days of creation project. Since days 1, 2, and 4 don’t really require building our Lego building focus was on plants, land animals, and sea creatures.

I broke this project down into a few different days. One day the boys built plants and tress, the next day sea creatures, and then land animals. Once they had a stock pile of living items they were ready to photograph each day of creation.

7 Days of Creation Project: Poster

  1. For creating light they photographed the blue board next to a white piece of paper.
  2. For separating the expanse they photographed the blue board next to a darker blue piece of paper.
  3. For creating land with plants they photographed the green board with their selected plants and trees.
  4. For the night sky I helped by taking a photo of the blue board and placing stars and sun on it using Illustrator. I think stickers of sun and stars could be used too.
  5. For sea creatures we placed the green and blue boards next to each other and then placed their sea creatures on top of the blue board.
  6. We created a Lego Adam and placed him on the green board so he could begin naming the animals.
  7. For day 7 the boys built a bed with a Lego man resting. They thought this was the best way to represent the 7th day of creation and complete their project.

After the photos were taken I had the boys dictate to me the verses they wanted for each picture. I typed them up, printed them, and then the boys taped them to their posters. I had some foam letters and numbers from an old project, just enough to create a title and number the photos.
