Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution: Draw, Write, & Learn

4th - 8th
Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution is a DVD series produced by Answers in Genesis.  Quoting from their website's description,  "Enter the fascinating world of animals to reveal sophisticated and complex designs that shake the traditional foundations of evolutionary theoryLion-killing birds, storm-sensing dogs, and “fasting” emperor penguins.  Powerful evidence proves that animal designs can be attributed only to a Creator and cannot be explained by evolution."  In this class, we will watch the videos, share class discussion about them, and draw or color pictures of many of the animals mentioned. Step-by-step drawing instructions, and coloring pages will be provided.  Older students, or those who prefer writing can make an animal facts page, and choose to write a paragraph about their favorites, if they want to. Students will need to bring their own preferred drawing supplies. (choices including sketch books, or drawing paper, watercolor paper, pencils, erasers, coloring pencils, watercolor pencils, or crayons) This will be really interesting for all ages, so I am sure we'll have a lot of fun together!

In this class students will develop fluency, spontaneity and confidence while having FUN! We will be writing-OUT-LOUD through improvisational speech games and practicing reading aloud through performing FUN Christian based skits. The goal is to learn public speaking skills in a safe non-threatening environment among friends so that we may be bold ambassadors of Christ! The best way to learn to speak up is simply by doing it- a lot. We will learn character development, how to tell, put together and perform a good story. Excellent public speaking skills will be developed by learning and practicing how to speak for both sides of a topic. We will have fun with props, make some and use them effectively.
