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.

"...this is our 2nd year with your elementary science. I can't express what a blessing it has been!! The year before I found your curriculum was a horrible science year. Errors and confusion abounded. We stopped before completing it. In previous years we used Fulbright's 'Exploring Creation With....' Good, yet too long, and we were never sure if we got the correct result in the experiment or not. Nothing stuck with my two children."
"Enjoying is like the understatement of the century!! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! By far our favourite 'school' we’ve ever done!!!"
"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 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!"
"Science in the Beginning was the first science book that my kids loved! I loved it too!"
