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.

"Absolutely love Science in the Beginning, and my kids loved it too. I switched science the next year to something I had previously bought, and my son basically told my no after a few lessons, and that we had to go back to the Berean series."
"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 been homeschooling for many years and have been using your [Science in the Beginning] program with two of my younger children, aged 9 and 11. I am writing to let you know how MUCHHHHH we enjoy your materials! My children are learning SOOOOO much!! My husband, an electronics engineer who studied physics -- a once-skeptic of homeschooling -- is very impressed with this science program."
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 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. "
