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 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."
"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!"
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!
Me, this morning. "Boys! Come here!"
Boys, running into the dining room. "YAY! Time for school! Can we do Science?!"
Safe to say they like this science book
"I currently am using your Science in the Beginning series with my 1st-5th grade children. I also have a 6th grade student using your General Science, and a 10th grade student using your Physics and Advanced Biology. I am so pleased with your Science in the Beginning series. It is thorough, and I believe it thoroughly prepares the student for the junior high and high school level science courses. Thank you for this curriculum. My younger kids love the experiments!"
