Explore Mount St. Helens with Noah Justice (Awesome Science Episode 5) will take children and teens to the scene of one of the largest landslides and volcanic eruptions in America. This episode will teach viewers why observable events help us understand the catastrophic Great Flood; the impact of rapid erosion, coal formation, and quick biologic recovery; and how canyons, stratified layers, and petrified forests formed quickly.
Traveling is even better when you discover the evidence of biblical history and truth along the way. Hosted by 14-year-old homeschooler Noah Justice, his fresh approach to science and the Bible will get children more excited about the truth with each episode of Awesome Science.
I was pretty excited to review this episode. Something about volcanoes has always intrigued me since I was a kid. I remember when Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980. At the time of the eruption I had a cousin who was living in Washington. When he moved to Colorado a few months afterwards I was even more intrigued listening to him tell me all he knew about the subject. I spent a lot of time at the library checking out books about volcano's. It was a lot of fun.
Learning about the catastrophic event of Mt. St. Helens that occurred and the fact that it became a literal living laboratory that was observed and left evidence for scientist to see and study. That it doesn’t take millions of years to form canyon, coal, petrified wood.
Kids, teens, and parents you will get and in depth study that will support the evidence of the Biblical account of the flood.
As with all the Awesome Science series the sight are amazing. This has been my family’s favorite in this series. The tunnels, caves, and the explosions made the DVD leave you in awe of God’s awesome power.
I was given the study guide to look through and review. I would say this is more suited for older kids/teens. I also feel that you can adjust it easily enough for younger kids without too much hassle. The study guide that accompanies the DVD includes word lists, key concepts, Fill in the blank section, true and false section, and a Biblical study guide and much more. The questions are centered on the movie and the guide is well thought out and a good companion for the DVD series.
My only complaint is the size of the book. As a homeschooler with many books I would have loved to see a larger book so it doesn't get lost in my books or I would love for it to fit inside the video DVD case. That is minor complaint compared to the quality of this production. That’s just what happens when you have books all over your house. The DVD is $14.99 and the Study Guide $3.99.
Other DVDs are available in the Awesome Science series; Explore the Grand Canyon, Explore Yellowstone, Explore Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest, Explore Yosemite and Zion National Parks, and Explore John Day Fossil Beds.
