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.

"...my boys are BEGGING for science every day! No kidding. You did a great job making the information "meaty" enough for my 6th grader and, yet, my 2nd grader also understands and can reiterate the concepts, too."
"Overall the experiments are easily set up and a definite help to understanding/remembering the lesson. They are the high-light of the lesson."
Me, this morning. "Boys! Come here!"
Boys, running into the dining room. "YAY! Time for school! Can we do Science?!"
Safe to say they like this science book
"I have to say that we are loving the course! My children are keen, always asking for the next lesson, and are loving the experiments. It's proved to be a very good fit for our homeschooling family."
"I have found the curriculum absolutely phenomenal and I tell everyone I can about you & your work!! I would not have considered myself strong in the area of science & quite frankly not particularly interested. However that is no longer the case; not only do I now thoroughly enjoy science and learning, I have been successful with every experiment tried. We have learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed joining the dots of science & life."
