Learning About Evolution

My wife, 2 daughters, and I attended our second Kid's Science Day in a month.  The second one had a booth/activity on evolution.  The person manning the booth discussed how humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor and showed them casts of several ape hands/feet.  My girls were able to compare their hands to the hands of the casts.  Very cool!

This was followed by an art activity to color in a drawing of a chimpanzee and make a mask out of it.  Both girls had fun with this.

My advice to parents is to look around for science days.  There are more out there than you think and you never know what cool science demos/experiments/concepts your children will be exposed to.  Plus they'll have fun!
