Science in the Beginning Set

By Dr. Jay L. Wile, Publisher: Berean Builders

The Science in the Beginning Set includes one of each of the following items.

There are 90 lessons in this course. Instructions explain that you can do lessons every other day if you want to include the optional challenge lessons or only twice a week if you don’t. Wisely, Dr. Wile leaves it to the parent to decide how many science lessons their children need. Students who have a talent for science will want to do the challenge lessons. Skipping the extras doesn’t interfere with regular lessons because the content in challenge lessons isn’t linked to the regular lesson content.

Each lesson has a hands-on activity that will engage your student. The reading part of the lessons is usually 1-2 pages. At the end of each lesson is a review. The review has three levels of questions: Youngest Students, Older Students, and Oldest Students. These are writing/journaling types of questions.

Younger students who aren’t writing yet could answer orally. If you want them to do some copy work, you could write the answer for them to copy into their notebook.

Science in the Beginning Textbook

By Dr. Jay L. Wile, Publisher: Berean Builders

ISBN-13: 9780989042406

Science in the Beginning Textbook is a hardcover textbook with beautiful photographs and sketches. It is fun to look at it. We like an appealing science book. The lessons are divided into six units of 15 lessons each. There are review lessons.

Science in the Beginning covers topics in order of the days of creation.

  • Light and Energy topics for the first day of creation
  • Water topics for day two
  • Land, sea, and plants for day three
  • Sun, moon, and stars for day four
  • Invertebrates, vertebrates, sea animals, and birds for day five
  • Land animals, people, and the five senses for day six.

There’s a nice discussion of the seventh day of the creation week.

In the last section of the book is a handy glossary. Learning new science vocabulary is important.

Helps and Hints for Science in the Beginning

By Dr. Jay L. Wile, Publisher: Berean Builders

In Helps and Hints for Science in the Beginning there are:

  • Answers to the review exercises
  • Hints to make some lessons easier
  • Tests and answers for those who want to test their children

This book comes with the set, but it’s available separately if you need an extra copy.

Note: I read one review on the web from one of the homeschoolers in Australia who was a beta tester for it. It said that the answers were in the back of the text. However, in this edition, it’s in the Helps and Hints. The textbook has no answers.
