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.
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.
