Explore Yellowstone with Noah Justice: Episode 2 DVD, Awesome Science Series
9 yr old begged to watch the 2nd one immediately
Awesome Science Explore Yellowstone (episode 2) with Noah Justice review (I received this DVD to watch and give a written review of, in exchange I get to keep the DVD and Study Guide that I received). This was the 2nd video that we watched of this series (so far there are 6 all together), immediately after watching the 1st episode. The information given continued to hold my 9 yr old son's interest through out the whole video. The young man who hosts the DVD is very knowledgeable about Creation Science and the location that he is exploring. He gives information from a Creation point of view while helping children to understand the evolutionist point of view and then debunking it by Biblically backing up the Creation point of view. There are lots of wonderful scenic views of the area, maps, facts, and a combination of History and Science provided. I have noticed that not all sites provide the Study Guide we received with these DVDs and those that do require that you order them separately for an additional cost. In my opinion this it's well worth it to by the Study Guide to accompany the DVD. The Study Guides are put out by Master Books. The Study Guide breaks down to the various points of interest of the location and scientific, including vocabulary, discussion questions and bonus activities to do. We will be purchasing the rest of the series and will be looking forward to more being added in the future. It'll well be worth the investment to add them to our home library. The DVD's are also put out by Master Books.

"It's Flood Action, Not Millions of Years"
"Yellowstone National Park, where many natural wonders are remarkably preserved, also preserves a testament to the catastrophic Genesis Flood and its after-effects. Secular and biblical geologists both agree on the evidence found in Yellowstone, but disagree on how to interpret that evidence."
Explore Yellowstone with Noah Justice is the second DVD in the Awesome Science series that ties physical evidence with a global flood using Empirical science as recently seen during the Missoula flood in Eastern Washington state.
Join 14 year old, homeschooled, Noah Justice as he takes you through the evidence supporting and defending a Biblical worldview of a worldwide, catastrophic flood. Some of these evidences include: the rate of growth of terraces in the Mammoth Hot Springs area, complex structured microbes in hot pool's, the absence of glaciation and much more!
Also a part of this DVD is a very well done section on the Petrified Forrest with 7 Awesome Facts that support a young Earth theory.
In addition to the video is a study guide to help tie information together. (This can be purchased separately.) Within these pages are: General information about Yellowstone, the Geologic Column, Geysers, Yellow River and Hayden Valley, Yellowstone Falls and Lake, Hot Springs, Petrified Forrest and much, much more! As with Explore the Grand Canyon, throughout this study guide are great discussion questions. For example: "Why do secular scientists have to combine locations to get their full view of the geologic column?"
The Awesome Science Series is one that should be in every home library. All age groups will benefit from the explanations, illustrations and spectacular scenery contained within this 30 minute DVD.
I received a DVD of Explore Yellowstone with Noah Justice free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Yellowstone from a Biblical Perspective
I was recently given the chance to watch and review Awesome Science: Explore Yellowstone and Awesome Science: Explore the Grand Canyon. These DVDs approach science from a Biblical worldview and share how these natural wonders align with an accurate reading of the Bible.
Modern science would have you to believe that natural wonders like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone needed millions to form, but the Bible tells a different story. Noah Justice, the narrator of these DVDs explains how an event like the great flood of Genesis 7 would be able to cause such disturbance as to form these amazing sights.
I love how the DVDs are completely set on the accuracy of Scripture. They state that they use the Bible as their history guideline, which is rare to find and perfect for teaching your children science from a Creationist viewpoint. I also appreciate the amount of information contained in these DVDs. I can honestly (and somewhat shamefully) say that I knew very little about the Grand Canyon, and absolutely nothing about Yellowstone before watching these DVDs and now I know much more =) There is so much information that I think anyone would have to watch them more than once to digest all of it.
The only thing I do not like about these DVDs is that they sound pretty much like a textbook (but with decent narration) put to pictures. It is info and data galore, jam packed into 30 minutes. I appreciate that it is short and to the point, but it would be nice to be able to sit an absorb the info before moving onto the next point.
I definitely would recommend these resources to any family wanting to learn more about the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone, I just probably would want to also use a medium other than DVD as well, so that your child would be able to slow down and absorb the great info that is presented here! If you plan on studying these subjects with your children this coming year, definitely check the Awesome Science series out as an addition to your curriculum!

Great Homeschool Curriculum
Noah Justice is back with Epside 2 of Awesome Science. Take a journey with Noah on this DVD special to learn all about Yellowstone Park from a Biblical perspective. This DVD teaches your children so many things about America's first national park with a special emphasis on the petrified forests. Noah teaches your children that the flood had an effect on volcanos. The effects on these volcanos caused many of the wonders that some consider evolutionary in nature. In fact most of Yellowstone's signs point to evolution but Awesome Science points to God and His historic account.
I love watching my children learn more and more about the mighty God we serve. Series and curriculums like these lead Apple to say things on a recent camping trip like "I'm just enjoying God's beautiful creation." It's so important that we don't let these opportunities slip through the cracks. If you are afraid you don't know enough answers to teach your children the difference in evolution and creationism then I encourage you to pick up the whole Awesome Science series. Make sure you get the study guides as well. They help you break down the DVD into smaller sections and the fill in the blanks and other activities help ensure your child has grasped the information.
