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.

"We study Dr. Wile's first book, 'Science in the Beginning', and we loved it. But then I got a little apprehensive about the next ones, because like you say, they were written with a different approach. I tried a different curriculum, with a more traditional sequence, and we were bored! One semester was enough. Since then we have done all four books, and we started with the 5th one this school year. What we love the most is that the lessons teach ONE concept, and the experiment, like you mentioned, cements that concept. I will not look into more Science curricula ever. "

"...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."

"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."

"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!"

"...this is our 2nd year with your elementary science. I can't express what a blessing it has been!! The year before I found your curriculum was a horrible science year. Errors and confusion abounded. We stopped before completing it. In previous years we used Fulbright's 'Exploring Creation With....' Good, yet too long, and we were never sure if we got the correct result in the experiment or not. Nothing stuck with my two children."
