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.

"Science in the Beginning is a favorite in our house. The experiments are easy and the whole thing isn't time consuming, I'm glad the littles in my house are learning this way."
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!
"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."
"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!"
"I have gone through the Junior High science books with my older children and I really liked the books. I got Science In The Beginning to go through with my younger kids and they love it. They couldn't wait for their dad to get home so they could show him what they learned that day! It really makes it easy for the kids to understand complex ideas with a fun experiment each lesson. I have tried other experiment based science curriculum for my younger students, but it lacked having God at its core and the kids were not enthused about it. I am sticking with this curriculum from now on, and I already told my homeschool friends about the great science books from this publisher."
