After deciding to homeschool our third-grade and kindergarten boys this year, I was at a loss to find a science program that taught from a Christian perspective without compromising teaching actual scientific concepts. We chose this program because it seemed to be the best bet, and it's exceeded my expectations.

So far, we're 9 lessons in, and with every lesson I can see that "A-ha!" moment when the concept clicks with my boys. They're retaining information about energy, and applying it to our daily discussions.

I'm grateful that the program explains God's design in the scientific process. Other Christian science books I've seen have given more of a "God made it, and that's that" approach, which doesn't do justice to how amazing and wonderful science really is. We can't wait to finish out this year and start next year with Dr. Wile's next book in the series, "Science in the Ancient World."

Science in the Beginning by Dr. Jay L. Wile

Eureka--I've found it!! If you are searching for a fun, easily prepared, multi-level, God-centered science learning adventure then look no further. Dr. Wile takes younger students through a memorable science learning experience following the six days of Creation in his text Science In The Beginning. Some of the great scientific topics coordinating with each day of Creation include Light & Energy, Water & Air, Rocks & Plants, The Sun & Solar System, Fish & Birds, Land Animals & Humans. Each lesson begins with a science experiment using household items that this busy mom of 9 could get her hands on quickly. I loved the joy and excitement that our children (grades 6th, 4th, 3rd, & 1st) displayed whenever I would say, "Time for science." They would run to get their science journals (that contains drawings of experiments and answers to objective questions) and they always looked forward to trying out the experiments. The experiments are awesome! Yes, you get to burn things up and explode things and, well, I don't want to give it all away. The multi-level questions and assignments at the end of the lesson aided me in determining if the lesson objectives were learned and also challenged my oldest with a deeper search for more scientific knowledge. I love the colorful, hardback text, and the Helps & Hints handbook. (I recommend reading the Help and Hints book before each lesson and experiment, as it helps with the success of the experiments and guiding the students to a better understanding of the learning objectives) We were blessed to learn so much about God's world and Creation together in a fun and memorable way. Thank you, Dr. Wile!

I really love this curriculum but what I don't love is that every. Single. Lesson has an experiment that you have to do. It would be different of you could skip the experiment, but you can't, as it is built into the lesson with questions about the experiment, etc. It's a bummer because we don't always have time to collect the things needed and do the experiment.

I feel like the mom that gave the feedback starting with Eureka! Seriously we have tried other science curricula and I have either gotten bored with them, they were too wordy, or did not cover enough ground for the whole school year. This science has EVERYTHING that I want in a science curriculum. It is multi-leveled but not confusing and over done like I have found with most unit studies that I've tried. It is just the perfect fit for my family. My girls are 5th and 3rd grade and they love science. My 9 year is inquisitive and thoughtful as we go through the lessons and my 7 year old regurgitates the information extremely well for her age level and that is a testament to the ease and fun and vigor of the curriculum. Get it, you won't regret it!
