Day 2 – Sky and Sea

Genesis 1: 6-8

God said, “I command a dome to separate the water above it from the water below it.”  And that’s what happened. God made the dome and named it “Sky.” Evening came and then morning—that was the second day.

Reflection

Think about the sky and the sea, use the paint and the paintbrushes to paint what you think the sky and the sea look like. It could be a bright, sunny and calm day, or a stormy, cloudy and windy day.

Response

Our carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) released into the air with each action/activity/product we buy.

Things you can do: Read the list below and consider if there is one you or your family could try.

  • Use your car less (walk or ride your bike instead, car pool, use public transport)
  • Change your fuel (from 91 unleaded to 95 or 98 Octane fuel. Both 95 contain 1/3 of the amount of sulphur in them. Sulphur is linked to respiratory issues and acid rain)
  • Buy local products (less transport required, therefore less greenhouse gases)
  • Eat less meat (Meat production, particularly red meat (i.e. cows) is much more energy, water,  and resource intensive than vegetable production. So even eating one less meal with meat a week can go a long way!)
  • Attend a Climate Protest (encourage the government to take Climate Change seriously)
At Home Variation

Couldn’t make it in person or want to continue this station at home?

Grab your own art supplies to draw the see and sky yourself. If you don’t have any physical art supplies, you could try a free online tool like sketch.io/sketchpad/
