Putting It in Order
This is a great device for a "do it together" teaching.
Using the record in Genesis 1 as an example, here is a
suggestion for a "flip book." It has been divided into 6 sections
to represent days, with room to write what happened on those days and to
First fold a sheet of typing/printer
paper or construction paper vertically as indicated by the blue line in
diagram (with the right portion being slightly wider than the left).
Draw 5 horizontal lines dividing the
paper into sections representing "days," and cut each line to the vertical
fold, leaving the right portion uncut.
With the paper folded and the cuts made, write
"Day 1" through "Day 6" in the picture below.
As you go through the record in Genesis 1, the children can open the
flaps (pages) for each day and write what happened on that particular day
on the left-hand section and make a quick illustration of what was made
on that day on the right-hand portion of the exposed page.
