We recently had an opportunity to review Explore Dinosaur National Monument. In this episode, Noah travels to an area in western Colorado and eastern Utah which has 200,000 acres set aside as the Dinosaur National Monument, In 1909 a huge deposit of dinosaur bones were found there. You and your children will learn about this monument, which fossils are the most common ones found at this site, the various rock layers that they were discovered in, the significance of how the fossils were found, significance of Unio clam shells, Native American Petroglyphs, soft tissue discoveries, and more.
People are fascinated by dinosaurs, especially children. My family loves anything dinosaur and I always am excited to find resources about dinosaurs that are creation based! The Dinosaur National Monument is not a place that we will probably ever have a chance to go and visit, but thanks to this DVD we did get a tour of it. The DVD included many fascinating facts that support the creationist view point while still discussing the evolutionist view point and even tackled subjects such as dinosaurs on the ark, meat eating dinosaurs, dinosaurs after the flood, the importance of the position the dinosaur fossils were found in, dinosaurs in ancient art, and much more. This DVD is packed full of information! A great DVD to add to your homeschool resources or for a dinosaur study.
