Creation Science Resources

Creation Science Resources

This page is “Under Construction”  I will be adding to it and organizing as time allows.  Feel free to add your favorite science link in the comments.  In my home there is always a science project going on.  We love science, but one of the problems I have is finding resources online that are creation-based.  So I decided to begin a project to find resources that are “safe” for those teaching science from a young earth/creation perspective.  No worries of evolution, millions of years, etc.

The Center for Scientific Creation

World’s Greatest Creation Scientists Kid’s Health for Kids Page  This site is secular, however it seems to focus on the facts.  I have not found it to be politically slanted or evolution-based, just basic health facts.   Here is information about where the articles come from and how they are written.
Edheads  This is another secular site with some amazing virtual experiments!  Perform virtual surgery on the heart, brain, knee, etc.  Spongelab This website is secular and gets much of its content from public school textbooks, however some of the interactives are helpful and have no sign of evolution.  The Build-a-Body interactives are my favorite for review of body systems and you can choose a female or male body for your students.  I would not recommend letting them loose on this site, but if you pull up specific activities for them to complete, they should be fine.  They even offer a Build-A-Body iPad app.  I do not have an iPad so I have not been able to review the app.  Might be something worth checking out though.  There are many fun interactives on this site in many different areas of science, but be careful and review each one before allowing your students to play.
