Day 2 - Sky and Water

We started the lesson by reading the Bible scripture:
Genesis 1:6-8 Then God said, "Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth."  And that is what happened.  God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens.  God called the space "sky."  And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day.

Next, we placed our picture up for Day 2 on our yarn.  Pictures from BibleStoryPrintablesExplanations on what I did is from Day 1.
Then, my little disciples colored their coloring sheet while I got the supplies ready for our science experiment.

I found this on youtube and thought it would be the perfect idea for today!  How to make a cloud.

Supplies: 1/3 of warm water in a jar, a pan of ice, matches

Light a match, place it in the water and quickly place the ice pan on top.

You will see a mini cloud forming in the jar.  (It's difficult to see so we did it 4-5 times so I could make sure my little disciples saw it.)

When we took the ice off of the jar, you could see more mini clouds!

The youtube video I posted above explains all of the scientific reasoning.  I am not a science teacher so don't ask me questions:)

Seven Days of Creation Song - Day 2
(Tune of "Are you Sleeping Brother John") 
God created, God created.
Sky and Water, Sky and Water.
That was on the second day, That was on the second day.
It was good, It was good.

Other ideas include:
Snack - cotton candy and water
Creation Poem
I saw this idea from  She created a picture of sky and water.

Other Creation Days



  1. Such a fun experiment! And, what a great learning opportunity!

  2. What a great idea! We made a similar thing: rain in a jar:

  3. I did this (for our Sunday School class),in a quart jar filled 1/3 of the way, and added about 2 drops of blue food coloring. It made the "cloud" a little easier to see, due to the added contrast.
