Description

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.

Testimonials

"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."

"The experiments are simple, effective and practical, and the concepts are explained with such clarity...The introduction of scientific terms is also very good. Just enough to begin to develop a scientific vocabulary. I don't know quite how to express it- but you teach worldview without specifically teaching it - you show logical explanations for things that the evolutionists have illogically explained. I really appreciate the personal, readable conversational style in which the books are written. It is indeed like having you meet with us and say- "Come, let's explore God's creation together, let me share with you what I've learned of Him, through His creation..."

"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."

"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!!!"

"I absolutely LOVE this curriculum! I am using it to teach at our co-op, and it is wonderful. The easy experiments with every lesson make this curriculum entertaining and interesting to my 3rd-5th grade students. I highly recommend this curriculum for the elementary student."
