Review: Explore Meteor Crater & Petrified Forest with Noah Justice

Our children aren't the only ones who love the Awesome Science DVDs that Noah Justice hosts.  We already have 2 of them and were excited to receive the 3rd and most recent edition, "Explore Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest" for review.  It sure didn't disappoint; we all enjoyed this 30-minute episode.

I really didn't know much about the petrified forest or meteor craters before watching this program.  We plan to look for more books and photos of these areas.  The videography of this DVD is excellent (as all the Awesome Science DVDs are).  However, half an hour goes by too quickly!

More than just photos and the typical information regurgitated in evolutionary science texts, this DVD gives scientific evidences based on a Biblical history. 

In addition to this great DVD, there is an individual study guide available, allowing you to test your/your child(ren)'s knowledge regarding what they just viewed.  There are true/false questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, and "facts".  I like that this is all laid out in writing as it is easier to go back to details on paper vs in a video.  Using the menu options on the DVD, you could easily adapt this for homeschooling; select which topic you want to watch and then continue with the study guide based on said topic.

I can't recommend these DVDs enough!  Just tonight, I noticed that there are 3 new DVDs set to be released toward the end of October; can't wait to watch them with our family!

This book is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group.
