The Creation to Cross Totem Pole records the seven day creation story
on one side and the fall to redemption story on the opposite side.
During class-time read the Creation and
fall account from a child-friendly Bible. Point out that Genesis 3:15
records the first mention that "Someone" will come to defeat
our adversary, Satan. Thousands of years later this came true when Jesus defeated Satan by
his death and resurrection; thereby providing our redemption and
Creation: Genesis 1:1-31; 2:1-3. (The first three days God
created the spheres. The next three days show what and who inhabit
those spheres. For example, on day one God created the heavens and
earth, separating the light and the darkness. Then on day four he
filled those spheres with the sun and moon. Day one coordinates with
day four, day two with day five, and day three with day six.)
Day 1: God created the heavens and the earth. Separated the light,
"the day", from the darkness, "the night".
Day 2: Separated the expanse between waters, creating the sky, land
Day 3: Created all vegetation and seed bearing plants, according to
Day 4: Created two great lights, the Sun to govern the day and the
Moon to govern the night.
Day 5: Created creatures of the sea and winged birds, according to
their own kind.

holy day of rest (Exodus 20:8-11; Psalm 150:1).
