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 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."
"My 15 year old twins have used Apologia from K-9th grade and we discovered Science in the Beginning last year when looking for curriculum for my 1st grader. We absolutely LOVE it!!!! The daily experiments help to solidify the lessons and my little one has much better grasp on the material than my older kids ever had at that age."
"...we've found it really user friendly (even though we've got a spread of ages.)"
"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."
