Science in the Beginning is the first book in a hands-on, multilevel elementary science series that introduces scientific concepts using history as its guide. Because each lesson is built around an activity or experiment, it is engaging for all K-6 students. In addition, there are three levels of review for each lesson, so the parent/teacher can choose the depth at which each student is expected to grasp the material. The course contains roughly 90 hours of instruction, 35 of which are composed of hands-on activities.
The beginning of history is given in the Bible’s creation account, and this book uses the days of creation as a way of introducing a wide range of scientific concepts including the nature of light, energy conservation, the properties of air and water, introductory botany, our solar system, basic zoology, and some aspects of human anatomy and physiology. As the students learn about these scientific concepts, they are constantly reminded of the Creator who fashioned the marvels they are studying.
This product is a set consisting of the textbook plus the helps & hints book containing everything the parent/teacher needs to know for the subject.

"Science in The Beginning has been a hit here...Great for multi-age families. Add in a blank sketch book for each child to draw and/or write their responses and you're done. It is a great pick up and go curriculum."
"We love this book! The experiments are simple enough for my 4 year old to participate in and the explanations are complex enough so that my 8 year old is learning."
"Late last year we completed [Science in the Beginning] and enjoyed it very much. Just this week we had a meeting with the principal of a new Distance Education school which we have enrolled with. He tried to convince us that another science program was better - but once I showed him the workbook my son had compiled with your course he was VERY impressed and told us to keep on the way we were going."
"My 6-year old grandson and I are thoroughly enjoying this, especially the experiments...The lessons are so well explained allowing him to grasp the concepts very well."
"We are enjoying your brand new elementary science curriculum, Science in the Beginning. Both of our kids (and I) look forward to science every week! I appreciate that common household objects are required for the seemingly simple experiments. The activities are easy enough for my 6-yr-old to understand, yet complex enough for my 10-yr-old to still glean something new and stay interested. I am finding most of the experiments to be quite cleverly set up. I love doing these lessons with the kids so I can watch for the glint of understanding in their eyes when they get it."
