Moody Science Adventures and
Moody Science Classics

Moody has produced a number of series of outstanding science DVDs that rival National Geographic Society in production quality, and, even better, they recognize God as the Divine Architect behind creation. There are 19 titles in the Moody Science Classics series ($8.99 each). Among them are City of the Bees, Dust or Destiny (God's amazing creation), Facts of Faith (science experiments are used to demonstrate spiritual truths), God of Creation, Hidden Treasures (microscopic nature), Prior Claim (man's inventions mimic God's creation), Red River of Life (circulation), Signposts Aloft (flying), Empty Cities (examination of the Mayan and Incan cultures), and Where the Waters Run (water). The films from the Classics series all have strong spiritual messages that are more the essence of each film than are the science topics.

Three DVD in the Moody Science Adventure series DVDs ($8.99 each) are oriented toward science instruction for children. Each DVD has six, ten-minute segments on different topics. The three titles and their topics are: The Clown-Faced Carpenter and the Wonder of You (woodpeckers, the stars, water, the human body, caterpillars, and how animals catch their dinner), The Power of Plants and Treasure Hunt (how a growing flower can split a sidewalk, microorganisms, bees, miners, fins/fur/feathers, and spiders), and Flying on Wings of Beauty and the Long Journey (butterflies, seeds turning into plants, the solar system, migration of salmon, the human bloodstream, and how seeds travel. The Adventure series is good for all elementary grades, although they are targeted for grades 3-6.

Moody has other series which I have not yet reviewed, so you will need to check these out for yourself. The Awesome Forces of God's Creation is a collection of three DVDs, each about 45 minutes long: Roaring Waters, Thundering Earth, and Whirling Winds ($24.99 for the set). Similarly packaged, The Wonders of God's Creation includes Planet Earth, Animal Kingdom, and Human Life ($24.99 for the set). Each of these DVDs is about 60 minutes in length.
