Unless you are using this course with someone else and they have the Helps & Hints you may want to order the set not just the textbook
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.

I just wanted to tell you how much my nine year old son and I are enjoying Science In the Beginning.
Every day I have him write in a journal about the best part of his day. So many of the entries are
"The best part of the day was when we had science", or "the best part of the day was when we did the experiment".
I cannot thank you enough for developing such an easy to use, God honoring, and kid-friendly curriculum.
"We love it, the kids love it and it is the best program I have seen and used!"
"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."
"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."
