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.

"Late last year we completed [Science in the Beginning] and enjoyed it very much. Just this week we had a meeting with the principal of a new Distance Education school which we have enrolled with. He tried to convince us that another science program was better - but once I showed him the workbook my son had compiled with your course he was VERY impressed and told us to keep on the way we were going."
"Overall the experiments are easily set up and a definite help to understanding/remembering the lesson. They are the high-light of the lesson."
"...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 love this book! The experiments are simple enough for my 4 year old to participate in and the explanations are complex enough so that my 8 year old is learning."
"We are loving Science in the Beginning so much that I just bought the second book even though we are only only At lesson 15. This is the best elementary science curriculum! Every lesson is fun and easy too. We don't even realize we are learning!"
