1. Define what you think is meant by creationism.
Any tale of either life, Earth or all of the universe being brought into existance by a supernatural means. Here in the US I would say most people would naturally think mostly of the Judaic creation story, however I would say any tale from any religion falls under creationism.

2. What educational value do you think creationism has to children?
I would say none, unless you are talking about religious education curriculum.
DaisyRach writes:
3. Where do you think creationism should be taught in the curriculum?
Science/RE/both/Not at all.
I believe it is best placed in a social studies curriculum. Where various cultures ideas on creation can be compared and contrasted.
DaisyRach writes:
4. How should the topic of creationism be approached?
As fact/ as a theory/ as a religious belief/ as a story/ alongside scientic theories/ as an alternative to scientific theories
I think that it should be taught exactly how it is, as a religious belief and that other creation ideas should be taught along with it.
