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.

"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."
"We are LOVING the experiments. Sometimes we have to repeat them because we are so fascinated by the results."
"I do truly want you to know how much we love your elementary course. I love the experiment every day – the kids look forward to it, and the amount of reading is very appropriate an manageable. "
"My husband and I purchased your Science in the Beginning book at the 2015 IAHE convention, and we have just started using it this year. I wanted to let you know how much we're enjoying it. The experiments are easy to execute, but leave my kids with an understanding of what we're learning. I have two boys who really appreciate hands-on learning, and they get excited when we pull out the science book (even if they groan every single time I tell them something they experience in daily life is science!). So, thank you. We are having a great time learning about light (and it's always a great day when you get to burn holes in things with a magnifying glass!!) and looking forward to the rest of the book."
"I just wanted to write and let you know who much my family has been enjoying your Science in the Ancient World book. The kids think it is great (I think I like it even more) and the science projects have all worked out beautifully. No hiccups whatsoever. This has to be the best science book I have chosen for the kids and look forward to the others in the future. I just wanted to let you know what a quality product you have produced and to keep up the great work."
