Creation Science Class - Volcanoes, Dinosaurs and Ice Age Activities

The kids had a wonderful time Creation Science class a couple weeks ago. My friend, Billy, did a bang up job of teaching the Creationist theory about dinosaurs and how they likely became extinct during the Ice Age immediately following Noah's Flood when the climate would have changed dramatically. To illustrate this point, we had the kids use a rock to break out a small toy dinosaur that Billy had put in water in a cup and froze. The kids had a lot of fun with this activity.

Gotta have a dinosaur fight!

We talked a lot about fossils and showed them scientific proof of how fossils can form much quicker than previously thought. Then each kid got a pan of previously moist sand with some chicken bones in them, now mostly dry, and they practiced carefully brushing the dirt away to expose the bone, as you would with a fossil. 

While a little messy, this activity is always a hit with the kids.

Hailey found some bones!

Ahh, and for the finale, we have Billy's famous volcano!

Don't you just love the look of wonder on all of their faces? Such cute kids!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

You can't go wrong with kids and volcanoes....even if you occasionally have to clean the ceiling! The faces are precious.

I loved dinosaurs as a kid and wanted to be a paleontologist. I even went to a camp in my later teenage years and got to experience some of the digs. It was so much fun! Still the part that bothered me was the evolution stuff. I am so thankful there is another way to teach our children.
