One of the best ways that children learn is by asking questions. For this reason I try to encourage children in my classes to do this.

Kids do ask some really interesting questions, and we should always be prepared to give simple, age-appropriate, Biblical answers to them.

If you as a teacher are asked a question, you are expected to give an instant answer, and I am sure that we have all discovered that on reflection these may not be completely adequate. It is for this reason that I encourage children to write out any questions they have and give them to me. Thus, I am then able to consider their questions, and if necessary research the answers - using the Bible as my main source - and give my answers the next time I see the children.

This Blog contains many questions that children have asked of me in classroom situations, together with my considered answers. I hope that you find them helpful. Most of us have a "Denominational bias", but I have tried to steer clear of this and give strictly "mainstream" Biblical answers.

I am sure that you will discover that many questions (such as Who made God? Is there life elsewhere in the Universe? Why is my brother?sister nasty to me? When did God create the dinosaurs? Did Jesus really rise from the dead?). come up time and time again. So become familiar with the answers to the most common questions, and then you won't have to keep researching them.
