Welcome to lesson 2 – God made me. This week we will be focusing on Genesis 1:26 -2:25. (missed week 1? click here)
Today, most children are taught that they are here by chance. We want to make sure our children know God created each of us special and for a special purpose.
Next week, we will learn about the fall, so this week’s lesson focuses only on the point that God made us.
Children will learn about themselves and that every person is unique and special. It also fits in with the ‘all about me’ theme taught in many preschools and nurseries.
Use your child’s Bible to read the Genesis 1:26 -2:25 and/or paraphrase the account in words that your child understands.
Ask them questions along the way to check their understanding.
When finished, watch the video below to reinforce the message.
This week’s video is “God’s Story: God Made People” from Crossroads Kids’ Club. (3:57 minutes)
Activities and worksheets

Thank you. This is amazing. Hope there are different themes that can help, e.g. THEME
Thank You, Caroline. My focus this year is to create one lesson each week for a story in the Old Testament, rather than to focus on themes. We will, however, cover theme topics through these lessons. For example, The ‘David and Jonathan’ lesson will cover friendship. Thanks again for the encouragement, glad you found them useful.

Can I get any more of these?
I absolutely love these! I feel they will help my kids completely getting ready to start a bible study with them and I’m hoping I can get the rest of Genesis.
Thank you Amanda. I started in Genesis at the beginning of the year and am working through the Old Testament week by week. Currently in Judges. If you click on Bible lessons, you should be able to view the rest from Genesis. Any trouble let me know and I can send you the links.
Thank you so much. I use these for the kids when I teach at Sunday school and the children love it! God bless you more.
