In a series of ten lessons, Christian Skits address science from the standpoint of Christian values. Did God create the earth? Yes, he did. He is the Creator, the greatest scientist ever known to man. Dr. Rubenstein, or “Dr. R.” as he is known to young Joey, learns to appreciate just how wise our great God is. The skits can be presented with live actors such as the children themselves, child and parent, child and teacher/tutor, or puppets. There are only two parts: Dr. R. and Joey so the skits are manageable for the classroom or the home schooler.
Skit 1 addresses the Creation. Each day is addressed Biblically and scientifically as Dr. R. begins to study the Creation in preparation for creating a man. He learns that even though technology has made vast advances in keeping body parts (such as a liver) alive in a petri dish, only God can create a man and breathe into him the breath of life.
Following the skit are activities that reinforce the lessons with both scriptural and scientific points. For example, one activity invites children to “breathe the breath of life” into a doll. The parent or teacher can then discuss how nothing happens – the doll doesn’t move or talk or “come alive” because we aren’t God. Only God can give life. Another activity suggests that they create a human from clay, just as Scripture says God did. The children are asked to assess their ability to include all the “parts” that bodies need in order to hear, see, breathe, etc.
The object of these lessons is to present science from a Christian standpoint, and to teach Biblical lessons from a scientific standpoint. The stories of the Bible are not myths – they are real – and it is proper and fitting that they be taught as such.
