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.

"...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."
"My 6-year old grandson and I are thoroughly enjoying this, especially the experiments...The lessons are so well explained allowing him to grasp the concepts very well."
This is a wonderful science curriculum! My son loves it and so do I! It's easy to teach, and has great experiments with every lesson. Also, every lesson clearly points to Gods design!
"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."
"Science in The Beginning has been a hit here...Great for multi-age families. Add in a blank sketch book for each child to draw and/or write their responses and you're done. It is a great pick up and go curriculum."
