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.

"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."
"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 just want to say that for the first time in my life, I'm enjoying science. I am homeschooling my 5 and 7 year old and we are working throughout your Science in the Beginning Book. I recommend it constantly!"
"I just have to tell you how much my daughter and I have loved Science In The Beginning. My daughter is 9-almost-10 years old and just loves experiments. Yesterday was our final day and she was so sad that she held the book and cried. Thank you for making such an enjoyable, approachable, and adaptable science curriculum. "
"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."
