Every kid loves to be surprised by explosions, things bubbling over and the unexpected twist in whatever you're teaching...but add God, scripture and life-application and you have a WINNING FORMULA!!! I have used this book over and over with elementary kids and I always hear squeals of delight and see total engagement in their faces. God created science, and He truly shines through the activities in this book!
This is a great resource for any Children's Minister or Children's Volunteer. It gives you simple yet "Amazing" science demonstrations and experiments that will help kids remember the truth about God, Jesus, the Bible and the love that God has for us. Each Devotion gives you an "Exploration Element" that realates to the science part of the devotion (if you are just looking for cool science experiments without the Bibilical connection these are great for you). Each Devotion also comes with a Bible Benchmark -- which is a passage of Scripture. It is amazing how these experiments really relate to the Bible verses!! This is a must have if you are teaching kids at any church -- they will think you are so cool and most of all they will listen and remember because they've really experienced something.
Amazing Science Devotions for Children's Ministry is a collaborative effort among members of the staff at Group Publishing. The book consists of 41 science experiments for kids, each designed to not only teach a science lesson but to also show kids how learning about science can teach us about the beauty and complexity of God's world.Each experiment consists of an "Exploration Element" which is the objective for the experiment; a "Bible Benchmark" which gives a Bible reference for the lesson; a list of supplies needed for the lesson; a list of optional supplies, and a note about preparation.Steps for each lesson/experiment are numbered and are very easy to follow. And there are experiments for learning about a wide range of science-related topics like fingerprinting, spiders weaving their webs, and gravity. Each experiment/lesson is designed to take about 10-15 minutes making them ideal for use during Sunday School classes or Vacation Bible School.Black-and-white, cartoon-like illustrations are scattered throughout the text. Both a scripture index and a subject index are included at the end of the book.What I Like: Everything.What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Christine M. Irvin - Christian Children's Book Review
I teach Sunday School and Vacation Bible School and am always looking for some extras to supplement my lessons. The easy to do experiments in this book have been great! My classes (anywhere from PreK to 6th grade) have loved seeing them, and I have loved how they tie into my Bible lessons!
I would recommend this book to anyone that is wanting to bring a Bible Lesson closer to home for the kids in the class. Some are hands on, and kids love that! The book arrived quickly and was in excellent condition.
Teaching using object lessons is a wonderful way to engage all 5 senses of the students and this will ensure a higher percentage of retention! That is the goal of all teachers and this book helps you reach this goal!
Am Director for our Wednesday night Childrens Program and led off the evening with object lessons and devotions, so this book came in real handy. I like to mix things up as often as I can and this book is a big help - easy to follow.
This book is a great way for children to see the wonders of God's creation in the proper way. The sections allow us to explain science facts through Biblical truths. It can be a firm foundation for later discoveries.
