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.

"The experiments are simple, effective and practical, and the concepts are explained with such clarity...The introduction of scientific terms is also very good. Just enough to begin to develop a scientific vocabulary. I don't know quite how to express it- but you teach worldview without specifically teaching it - you show logical explanations for things that the evolutionists have illogically explained. I really appreciate the personal, readable conversational style in which the books are written. It is indeed like having you meet with us and say- "Come, let's explore God's creation together, let me share with you what I've learned of Him, through His creation..."
"The kids love the experiments! I like that they aren't content just to do the experiment as written; they play around and try other things -- just to see what happens."
"My 5th grader and I LOVE the Science in the Beginning, science is now a favorite subject!"
"I have gone through the Junior High science books with my older children and I really liked the books. I got Science In The Beginning to go through with my younger kids and they love it. They couldn't wait for their dad to get home so they could show him what they learned that day! It really makes it easy for the kids to understand complex ideas with a fun experiment each lesson. I have tried other experiment based science curriculum for my younger students, but it lacked having God at its core and the kids were not enthused about it. I am sticking with this curriculum from now on, and I already told my homeschool friends about the great science books from this publisher."
"My 15 year old twins have used Apologia from K-9th grade and we discovered Science in the Beginning last year when looking for curriculum for my 1st grader. We absolutely LOVE it!!!! The daily experiments help to solidify the lessons and my little one has much better grasp on the material than my older kids ever had at that age."
