Opening Song: The World is So Big (PCS #235)

Lesson:
Heavenly Father had Jesus Christ create our beautiful earth, including the day and night, the oceans and land, and the plants and trees.

• Who created the things you see in this picture?

Jesus created all kinds of animals to be on the earth. Some animals live on farms and around our homes. Some animals live in the forest, some in the mountains, and some in the desert. Some animals live in the cold parts of the world and other animals live in the warm places.

• What animals live on a farm?

• What animals live in the forest, mountains, or desert?

Heavenly Father had Jesus put animals on the earth to help us. We use some animals for food, some work for us, and some are interesting to look at or play with.

• How do animals help us?

• From which animals do we get food, such as milk, eggs, or meat?

• Which animals are fun to have as pets?

• Which animals can we ride?

Let the children talk about experiences they have had with different kinds of animals.

Share your feelings of gratitude for the beautiful world that Jesus Christ created according to Heavenly Father’s plan. Express how grateful you are for the animals that have been placed on this earth for us to use and enjoy. (For tips on sharing your testimony please click here.)

Thanks for this lesson. I am using it so the kids are made aware of our pets. We have one pet going in for surgery and I want them to be mindful of her and give her the extra love she will need.

Gonna use this one at Relief Society this week for my new calling...the curriculum coordinator for the children's class during enrichment. Holla, that's a mouthful. Any way, I think I am going to bring some different pictures of animals that the kids will sort, these are farm animals, jungle, ocean, mountain, dessert and such. Hope it goes well.
