Join 14-year-old host Noah Justice as he explores the fascinating Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest in Arizona. In this third episode of the Awesome Science DVD series, Noah unveils amazing evidence that confirms the biblical record of Genesis.

My Thoughts

This is my third DVD from the Awesome Science series that I had the opportunity to watch with my kids.    Earlier this year, we were able to watch Explore Grand Canyon and Explore Yellowstone.   So when the opportunity arose to review the DVD titled Explore Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest, I jumped on it because I  particularly like the Biblical account in these scientific dvds. 

Once again I was impressed with the information found in this DVD.   Not only will the young Noah Justice will explain how a petrified forest can be formed and how the Meteor Crater in Arizona was made but he brings evidence with other sources of information.  In the case of the petrified forest, he will explain in details how the Flood account must be considered to explain this phenomenon by using Mt. St. Helens as an example.  When Mt. St. Helens burst back in 1980, it created a similar situation with the trees found around it.    When it went active again in 1982, it happened during the time of the year where snow was present.   This time, it created various layers which help to explain the Teepees found in Petrified Forest National Park.awesome-science-meteor-crater-petrified-forest-sg

Using evidence from the Bible as well as scientific facts, Noah Justice will help you and your kids to understand how things happens many years ago and how you can defend your belief about it.    Noah also does an interesting scientific demonstration on how a meteor crater could happen on Earth.   My kids really like to see him shooting a bullet inside the ground to demonstrate how a crater would formed without leaving much pieces from the meteor.

The Study Guide is specifically designed to enrich your experience while watching the DVD.   It includes bonus activities, fill in the blank and true/false questions as well as discussion questions.   My only disappointment is that this study guide does not fit in the DVD case which I would personally prefer.    

Other DVDs from Awesome Science are/will be available:  Explore Grand Canyon, Explore Yellowstone, Explore Yosemite and Zion National Parks, Explore Mt. St. Helens, and Explore John Day Fossil Beds.   Please note that the last three titles will only be available in the Fall of 2012.  Also available is the Study Guide that goes hand-in-hand with the DVD.   It is available at New Leaf Publishing Group.

The DVD Awesome Science – Explore Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest with Noah Justice should be available at your favourite bookstore.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find the DVD on but they do have the Study Guide.
