Building the Story (Part 1): Everything is Good (Contextual Enquiry)

This rule is like the maker’s instructions, given so that Adam and Eve can enjoy all the good things God has created, and live in perfect peace with one another and with God.
For differentiated teaching you could scaffold some discussion about whether that fruit and that tree were real physical items or whether that is symbolism in the story – about obedience to God in the way in which we live our lives.
