Textbook(hardcover) ISBN: 978-0-9890424-0-6 Helps & Hints(softcover) ISBN: 978-0-9890424-1-3
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.
This product is a set consisting of the textbook plus the helps & hints book containing everything the parent/teacher needs to know for the subject.
"We are LOVING the experiments. Sometimes we have to repeat them because we are so fascinated by the results."
"...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."
"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."
We really like the experiments, and Iím not an experiment kind of gal...Itís the first science that we have gotten done consistently. Iím using it with 6th, 4th and 1st graders.
"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."
