    Awesome Science Explore Yosemite and Zion National Parks, hosted by Noah Justice and produced by the Justice family, is a DVD with an accompanying Study Guide (also available as a free download) that presents scientific concepts from a biblical worldview. The engaging 14-year-old host does a wonderful job of clearly explaining both secular and biblical views of the creation of these national treasures, and my kids enjoyed hearing this from someone they could relate to. Noah explains how these areas were formed as a result of a global catastrophe, and gives evidence to show the shorter time span that this occurred than that given by secular scientists.

    The DVD is divided into sections, so parents can pause it and discuss scenes along the way. The Study Guide provides vocabulary and questions to cover what kids learn, and we like to keep the guide handy while watching the DVD, stopping to review the questions for comprehension. My younger boys benefit from this, because there is a lot of information to take in. My ninth grader, who just learned about erosion in science, was especially interested in the information in this volume of Awesome Science, and he commented how neat it was to see video footage of these places.

    Scripture references appear at the bottom of the screen, making it easy to look up the verses referred to--kids can read it for themselves. The Study Guide includes some neat bonus activities, such as mapping and research suggestions, and discussion questions are included as well. We watch the entire DVDs at once, pausing in between segments, in one day. Then, we spend the next week or two re-watching each segment and doing the corresponding activities in the Study Guide. Because Awesome Science includes geography, history, science, and language arts/vocabulary, this set makes a nice unit study, providing a break from our regular books and reinforcing concepts we have learned. Wow--getting to watch a DVD and call it school? My kids love it!

    So far, there are six DVDs in the Awesome Science series, published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Press. I have found the ones we have watched to be a really nice supplement to our science curriculum, and for visual learners, they are great reinforcement.

    I'm so glad Noah Justice is back for Season 2 of Awesome Science! The first episode of Season 2 (episode 4) is Explore Yosemite and Zion National Parks. I love that I always learn new things along side my children when watching these videos. I had never heard of Zion National Park and I learned that Yosemite was the first land set aside for public enjoyment. As always, I love for my children to learn science and history from the creation standpoint.

    Noah Justice gives kids (and adults) great information on the proof that Yosemite National Park and Zion National Park give about Noah's flood. He gives Bible verses to go along with the information that he is explaining. This episode goes into deep detail about the Ice Age or cold Earth temperatures. The short 30 min video length is just right for Apple & Speedy's attention span. The study guide that is available works well to cement the information that they have learned in each episode.

    Each video opens up a world of follow up research and projects. Shadowboxes, crafts, research to show creation vs evolution theories, and swimming to better understand evaporation- the possibilities are almost endless. Series like this are perfect for parents like me that are not as science savvy. Homeschoolers will enjoy the DVD based curriculum and the possibilities for taking the information farther. Public and private school students could use the videos to learn more about science from a creation basis. Get your student into Awesome Science!

    I received this video from New Leaf Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
