Certainly, you have heard different animal sounds like a bird whistling or a dog barking. Animals are part of God creation. God gave man the mission to take care of the animals and all of his creation. Those who hold a pet are surely familiar with what it entails to take care of an animal.
- Imagine you are in a zoo or farm, while looking at the animals in the handout. Which animal would you associate yourself with?
- On the handout “I associate myself with…” write your choice and why.
- Write or draw a thank you prayer to God for creating animals, for choosing us to take care of them, as well as to learn from them.
