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 5th grader and I LOVE the Science in the Beginning, science is now a favorite subject!"
"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 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."
"This is the third science curriculum we've tried in as many years. This one is a hit. The lessons are not overly long and boring like some can be. The experiments are fun and most are fairly easy to do. My kids look forward to science now and can't wait to see what they're going to learn.
Absolutely the best science curriculum I have found. I love the length of the lessons, the experiment that starts each lesson and the review questions. The explanation is very concise and clear. We are looking forward to the next book in this series!"
"...when they are released run, don't walk to get yourself copies. They are GOOD! We won't be using anything else from here on in, if we have a choice."
