WHAT YOU WILL SAY:

God did an amazing job creating the world in which we live. A world full of beauty and wonder, filled with many different types of animals. God loves each of the creatures that He created and He gave each of them a special place to live. Since God created the world and all that it contains, it was easy for Him to decide where each living thing should live. Some creatures live in the water and some live in the hot desert, while others live up high in the tops of trees. Today we will be carefully cutting out two sets of pictures and then matching the animal to where it lives.
