Product Description

Science in the Beginning is an engaging, exciting, hands-on, multilevel elementary resource that is the first in a planned series of books by Dr. Jay Wile.

Introducing scientific concepts in the context of history, the days of creation are used as a structure through which a wide variety of scientific topics are introduced, including: light, energy conservation, air & water, botany, the solar system, zoology, and some aspects of human anatomy and physiology.

A total of 90 lessons are included; 15 for every creative day in the Genesis account. The first 12 are "normal" lessons and the last 3 are challenge lessons. Depending on how much science you wish to teach in your homeschool, there are enough lessons to cover every other day for the length of a school year, or, you can finish the book by only doing two lessons a week (and skipping the challenge lessons).

Students will love the hands-on activity that begins each lesson. Most are experiments (that have been field-tested for homeschoolers!), and include step by step directions to keep you on track. As this curriculum was designed for all elementary-aged students to use together, the main lesson text takes a conversational, easy-to-read tone that all students can comprehend; illustrations and photographs are integrated throughout. A review assignment closes the lesson; questions are grouped for "youngest, older, and oldest" students. Students are to keep a notebook, and activities include both drawing and writing type notebook assignments. For evaluation, the notebook or oral questions can be used; tests are not in the text, but are in the helps and hints book.

Experiments use common household goods, though for some items that may not be on-hand, a list is provided at the beginning of the book. A full materials list for each creation-day chapter is also included for easy preparation.

The "Helps & Hints" book accompanies the primary text. Divided into three sections, this book will provide helpful notes on the lesson and experiments in the textbook, tests for each "day" of the creation week, and answers to the tests.

This curriculum is designed for elementary students in grades K-6.

This kit includes:

  • Science in the Beginning Text, 299 pages with glossary and index. Hardcover.
  • Science in the Beginning Helps & Hints Book, 48 pages, softcover.

    Great for lower elementary

    We just got done using this book for our kids in grades 2, 4, and 6. I really liked that the kids studied a variety of topics (based on what was made on each day of creation). I also appreciated that the experiments usually used things that were already available around the house and usually required little prep work. Some of the experiments were pretty amazing, others more simple. The teacher's guide included tests, something else I really appreciated since I didn't have to make up my own.

    I had mixed feelings about the complexity level of this book, which is why I didn't give five stars. At times I was thankful that scientific concepts were explained in a very easily understood manner, but other times it was TOO simple. There were lessons that basically felt like wasted lessons, such as the lesson that was solely about how many legs different creatures have. For this reason, I would recommend this book for the lower elementary levels.
