Awesome Science: Explore Yellowstone with Noah Justice
Awesome Science: Explore Yellowstone with Noah Justice begins with an introduction to Yellowstone National Park and some of the features explained in the film. Each attraction is looked at from the viewpoint of evolution and then refuted with the creationist point of view. In your walk through Yellowstone you will learn about geysers, Yellow River, Hayden Valley, Yellowstone Falls, The Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake, Old Faithful, Mammoth Hot Springs, and the Petrified Forest.
My children and I found this DVD an interesting way to learn more about Yellowstone from a Biblical perspective. I think it's important to give our children not only the Biblical viewpoint on creation and the world around us but to teach them about what the world believes so they can better defend their faith. This DVD is a great way to do just that and is full of beautiful images which will make you want to visit the park yourself.
I learned something new in the section about petrification. Did you know scientists have petrified wood in the lab and in a mineral-rich pool in Yellowstone? Neither did I. Fascinating!

I received a free copy of this DVD and study guide from New Leaf Publishing Group in order to write this review and have shared my honest opinion.
