Amazing Science Devotions for Children's Ministry

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.

Age Appeal: No age group is given, but I would say ages 6-12 would be about right.

Publisher Info: Group Publishing, 1999; ISBN: 9780764421051; Paperback, 93 pages, $16.99.
