You may have been to The Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, California, but have you had an up close encounter with the animals?

Did you know that the museum offers live animal shows?

How is a legless lizard different from a snake? It has all these features plus a tail that regenerates.

 

Not only does the museum bring out certain animals during tours, but the “CREEPING THINGS” animal show will come to you!

Glorifying God – Spreading Appreciation for His Creation – Refuting Darwinist Dogma

With a traveling entourage of underappreciated and misunderstood companions, we will visit your school, church, or homeschool and put on a detailed presentation that is sure to spark the interest of minds young and old. Many of the secretive creatures around us are often dismissed out of hand as gross, dangerous, or even vicious without a second glance or thought. We believe that all of Creation works together according to His will and that every creature has a function and order among it. Within this order, there are the black-sheep “Creeping Things,” serving many crucial functions and performing thousands of fascinating tasks that go unnoticed everyday. Let us, quickly dispel many of the misconceptions about reptiles, amphibians, insects and arachnids that have become ingrained in our modern culture.  Most of our animals are “kid friendly” and can be handled safely with our supervision and we do our best to get all of the observers to become participants. Our fun-fact-filled demonstrations usually last about 2 hours and contain about 10-20 animals. We currently can accommodate all of Southern California by appointment. You can visit the Creeping Things Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/CreepingThings

Many of our animals are currently on display in the Day 5 and Day 6 Exhibits of the museum and can be seen anytime Monday through Saturday 10 am to 6 pm. Others are behind the scenes and are used only for animal presentations. Look for more new animals coming soon to the Creation & Earth History Museum! Hope to see you there!

Here is some information about the event provided by CHEA.

 

Due to today’s controversial educational climate, more parents are looking for a Christ-centered educational choice. Homeschooling has become the method chosen by many parents. Inquirers, newcomers, and veterans alike will gather at the Disneyland® Hotel for California’s biggest homeschool event May 29-31, 2014. The Convention is hosted by the Christian Home Educators Association (CHEA) of California, the only statewide Christian homeschool advocacy organization, working on behalf of homeschooling year round for 32 years.

Kirk Cameron as Keynote Speaker, a free Mini Conference for New Homeschoolers, a high school graduation ceremony, the Themes in Focus Feature, a huge Exhibit Hall, a Used Curriculum Exchange, and family-friendly Disneyland® will make the Christian Home Educators Association’s (CHEA) upcoming 31st Annual Convention your family’s vacation destination.

Kirk Cameron, actor, homeschool dad, and CHEA Member, will provide a Keynote address Friday evening at the Convention and will host a free screening of his movie, Mercy Rule, for attendees.

            Steve and Annette Economides, America’s Money-Smart Family, and Dr. Brian Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) will be our other Keynote Speakers, joined by Andrew Pudewa of the Institute for Excellence in Writing as Featured Speaker.

A new feature this year is a free Mini Conference May 29 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. with Keynote Speaker Dr. Brian Ray. He will speak from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on “Just the Facts, Ma’am: Homeschooling Works.” After the Keynote Session, a free Introduction to Home Education will be held from 6:35 to 8 p.m. plus free entry to the Exhibit Hall Preview from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Attendees may attend either or both of the first two sessions (Keynote, Intro Session), but in order to participate in the third session (Exhibit Hall Preview), attendees must attend the Free Introduction Session. 

            Our new Themes in Focus feature highlights subjects that attendees have indicated are most important. These will include beginning homeschooling, special needs, high school and beyond, preschool, family life and finances, and worldview. This year’s nearly 70 workshops include something for all homeschoolers, from beginners to veterans.

No CHEA Convention is complete without the nearly 200 exhibit booths in the Exhibit Hall including curriculum, college prep, colleges, ministry, teaching resources, and more. Thursday evening is the Grand Opening of the Exhibit Hall (Convention registration required). There will be nearly 50 individual exhibitor workshops where you can get more specific information on curriculum and other products.

This will be our 3rd time to be a participant at this exciting event! It is always a tremendous blessing to meet more Christian homeschooling parents and their children as we get the opportunity to speak about God’s creation, science, and history. If you see our booth, please stop by and introduce yourselves. Hope to see you there!
