Did you know there are mysteries surrounding Mount St. Helen's?
Oh yes, and far more than you might imagine! Did it vanish? Does
it contain a floating forest? Can you find lost treasures hiding
there? This full-color activity book will teach your child all
about these mysteries and more through fun-filled puzzler activities.
Within the 80 pages, your upper elementary and middle school students
will uncover eight exciting mysteries that unveil creationist truths
about Mount St. Helens. In order to unlock the clues, your children
must unscramble phrases, complete word searches, decipher secret
codes, and more. Not only that, simple experiments are interspersed
to turn the already engaging book into hands-on fun.
By the end of the book, your child will have solved the:
- Mystery of the Vanishing Volcano explaining why the
top is no longer on the volcano.
- Mystery of Exploding Snow and Ice teaching why the
eruption actually rained snow and ice.
- Mystery of the Cliff Secrets describing how a cliff
formed quickly and why it contains three different rock layers.
- Mystery of the Menacing Mudslinger explaining why
a massive landslide occurred during the explosion of the volcano.
- Mystery of the Floating Forest analyzing how a wave

My 5 th and 8 th -grade children were both very engaged with the
playful lessons, and they immersed themselves in learning all they
could about the explosion of Mount St. Helens. I just love it when
a book sparks interest like this one did! I think the combination
of mysteries, fun activities, and apologetics is perfect for stirring
excitement. And, as a mom, I couldn't be happier that there wasn't
anything I needed to censor about the age of the earth or other
The only problem we had was having only one book that my children
had to share. Since the activities are completed in the book, it
would have been better if each of them had a copy. In my mind,
having to buy two of something because my children are so excited
isn't what I'd really call a problem! Speaking of price, I feel
that $14.99 is very fair, whether you use it as a fun supplement
or even a prepared unit study.
