Review: Awesome Science:Explore Dinosaur National Monument DVD w/Noah Justice


About the DVD:
In 1909, a huge deposit of dinosaur bones were found on the western side of the Rockies, in a vast area of western Colorado and eastern Utah of which 200,000 acres have been set aside as the Dinosaur National Monument. Explore this mysterious area and learn:
  • Which are the most common dinosaur fossils found at this huge site
  • What are the various rock layers in which the fossils have been discovered
  • The significance of fossil Unio clam shells, Native American petroglyphs, & more!
This series is produced by Kyle Justice, whose work has appeared on such networks as National Geographic, ESPN, and the Outdoor Channel, along with his creative homeschool-family team. Teen host Noah Justice serves as your guide to truth on the ground at national parks and other geologic locations, bringing you an educational and entertaining adventure!

My Review:
 Trying to find a science curriculum that is both fun and challenging isn't so easy. I have three very active little boys that want to get in there and get it done. Awesome Science DVD's are the way to go when you are looking for something quick and easy. And if you aren't really looking for a curriculum but want a virtual field trip, these can work for that as well. Noah Justice is a young man that helps explain on various trips to different historical or scientific sites the significance of each and all theories surrounding them. He has led us on many amazing adventures.

 The Dinosaur National Monument is an amazing site in Utah that houses many common dinosaur fossils. The host also explains many other types of dinosaur related items that would be of interest to dinosaur enthusiasts. He also connects to many Biblical accounts that I really enjoyed.
