Review Awesome Science Mount St. Helens and Facebook Party Reminder

Explore Mt. St. Helens with Noah Justice

Well the new year has arrived and that means another year of great Master Book reviews for you (one each month) along with an awesome Facebook party (more details on that below).

A moms review:
You may remember that I reviewed Awesome Science Grand Canyon and Yellowstone last year. We absolutely love this awesome series. Well guess what? There are 3 new Awesome Science DVD’s for 2013. All six of the DVDs also have a great study guide that can be purchased for an $3.99 which makes teaching with the DVDs super simple.

As always the DVD arrived and the kids jumped up and down with excitement that another surprise was delivered by the mailman . We popped in the 30 minute DVD the same day and were impressed yet again.

On May 18th, 1980 (a year before I was born) a tragic event for both the people and ecosystem of Washington State occurred...Mount St. Helen's erupted. But through this catastrophe scientists (both creationist and secular) have been able to make several discoveries as to how such acts of God have helped to shaped the Earth as well as provide evidence that a Biblical flood DID occur. It DOESN'T take millions of years to form canyons. stratified layers and petrified can happen in only days, weeks and months which Mount St. Helens the largest landslide in modern human history proves.

At first this one scared the kids (5 1/2 and almost 7) a little because they found out that we had a volcano erupt in the United States. Before they had no clue such things existed or could happen in the United States. But then they became engrossed and those fears subsided and the ohhhs and ahhhs started. Throughout the DVD children will learn about Mount St. Helen, rapid erosion, coal formation, biologic recovery, canyons, petrified forests and more.

My kids favorite part was when Noah explored Ape Cave. My favorite part was learning about the peat and coal formation...mostly because it brought back memories of when I got to explore a peat bed in Australia in 1998.

The study guide that you can purchase with the DVD is amazing. It is definitely geared towards older children but I was able to tailor the questions so that we were still able to utilize it. There are word lists, discussion questions, fill in the blank, true and false as well as bonus activities for parent and children.

The DVDs are hosted by 14 year old Noah Justice! Throughout the DVD he reveals scientific facts that back up that a Worldwide flood did happen just like God reveals in the Bible. The fact the DVDs are hosted by a kid are one of my kids as well as my favorite things about this series. The kids think its super cool that he knows so many things and that he gets to travel around to so many cool places. I think my daughter is a little jealous!

An additional resource I found...
I was looking for something on Mount St. Helen's and stumbled across this awesome resource perfect for exploring Mount St. Helen's on a field trip or just learning more about the volcano. I loved this statement on their website too, "But there was a spiritual dimension as well.  Leading creation scientists are persuaded God caused the eruption to rebuke evolution and give mankind fresh arguments for recent creation."
