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.

"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."

"...my boys are BEGGING for science every day! No kidding. You did a great job making the information "meaty" enough for my 6th grader and, yet, my 2nd grader also understands and can reiterate the concepts, too."

We really like the experiments, and Iím not an experiment kind of gal...Itís the first science that we have gotten done consistently. Iím using it with 6th, 4th and 1st graders.

"Science in the Beginning has been a great fit so far for my 4th grader, and the younger sister siblings love to 'play', too. Because of dyslexia, extensive reading and/or journaling has made other Science curriculums painful. The hands-on aspect of this book has brought joyful anticipation into our studies. I even heard my daughter drilling the younger kids on different kinds of energy until they got it right!

I was a bit concerned about doing a 'project' every day or two, but the Berean Builders website offers 15 days of sample lessons. The simplicity of the hands-on aspect of the lessons relieved my fears. For us, this book is simple AND effective. Thank you, Dr. Wile!"

"My children and I LOVE this science book! The lessons are simple and straightforward. It's written by a Christian author who also had a Ph.D in a science feild, meaning the content is scientifically accurate with embracing God. Every lesson has a brief experiment that you can do with basic household items. Then, there are lessons reviews broken down into three age groups. Learning science is fun and exciting in our home!"
