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 have been using Dr. Wile's, Science In The Beginning for my first grader and we LOVE it! It uses the 7 days of Creation for its 90 lessons! Has simple experiments and is age appropriate. Uses simple terms for parent and kid alike. I recommend this science book!!!"
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 currently am using your Science in the Beginning series with my 1st-5th grade children. I also have a 6th grade student using your General Science, and a 10th grade student using your Physics and Advanced Biology. I am so pleased with your Science in the Beginning series. It is thorough, and I believe it thoroughly prepares the student for the junior high and high school level science courses. Thank you for this curriculum. My younger kids love the experiments!"
"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."
"My children and I LOVE this science book! The lessons are simple and straightforward. It's written by a Christian author who also had a Ph.D in a science feild, meaning the content is scientifically accurate with embracing God. Every lesson has a brief experiment that you can do with basic household items. Then, there are lessons reviews broken down into three age groups. Learning science is fun and exciting in our home!"
