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. 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:
- Energy Conservation
- Properties of air and water
- Introductory botany
- Our solar system
- Basic zoology
- 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 audiobook is a supplement. It does not replace the book. Even though I do read through the instructions for all the experiments, it will be much easier for you to actually do the experiments if you have those instructions in written form. In addition, there are times when I will refer to specific pictures in the book, therefore I will change the wording from time-to-time so that you don’t have to be looking at the book while you listen to this recording.
Because Science in the Beginning is designed to give students a hands-on experience when it comes to studying nature, each lesson contains an experiment. Usually, there is some reading, then an experiment, and then more reading. As a result, most lessons are composed of three tracks so that you can skip around depending on your needs.
