Bible-based and Creator-centered, God’s Design for Science Curriculum will sow a love for science in your students grades 3–8. The evidence supports the Genesis account of creation!

What’s Included $564 value


Use this AiG-exclusive curriculum set as you sow the seeds of love and respect for Jesus the Creator. This comprehensive and easy-to-teach approach to science is a favorite among grade-schoolers. Start their science education early—before evolution-laced secular media claims another heart by creating distrust of the Bible and disbelief in God. We know of no other series of science textbooks that can educate grade-schoolers with so many fun lessons while at the same time affirming the truth of creation and the insufficiencies of the idea of evolution. Created for home schoolers, but widely used in "traditionally schooled" families as well.

This updated 4th edition includes:

  • More illustrations, more photos, more diagrams!
  • Updated content with the latest scientific findings and information
  • New design! More user-friendly layout, more color, and new fonts
  • Each book has gone through a thorough scientific review
  • All 12 units in the new edition cover grades 3–8
  • The new edition includes digital access to tests, worksheets, experiments, illustrations, videos, and more!

Curriculum summary

The God’s Design series is a highly regarded, complete science curriculum for grades 3 through 8. Covers life science, earth science, physical science, and chemistry & ecology. In the award-winning, full-color student curriculum the lessons are short, easy to teach, and take a hands-on approach using ordinary household items for experiments and activities. But easy does not mean lacking in substance; God’s Design textbooks and the all-new teacher supplements are comprehensive. Most important, God’s Design authors Debbie and Richard Lawrence approach science from a biblical worldview, emphasizing God’s handiwork in the world around us and showing how real science supports biblical authority and the Genesis account of creation. (Flexible order; use 1–3 lessons per week.)

  • has a strong biblical worldview.
  • is multi-level (easy to use with multiple children and different ages).
  • is flexible and works with all learning styles.
  • requires minimal teacher preparation.

“The best elementary-middle school science books I have seen”

Homeschooling mom Tina Rice, a contributing author of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, shares her experience with this outstanding curriculum. Her final conclusion? “I give . . . five stars!” Read the entire review now.

A well-designed series—teaching God’s Design

From 17 years of experience educating students in the science classroom, AiG–UK’s Paul F. Taylor examines God’s Design. He concludes, “This curriculum constantly reaffirms the truth of Scripture, and the authors are not afraid to tackle difficult topics.”

About the authors

AiG’s Dale Mason, publisher of ANSWERS magazine, shares a bit of background:

“When we discovered this curriculum, several of us felt like doing cartwheels! Never before had we found such a thorough, Bible-based and Creator-centered set of textbooks for kids. God’s Design was so obviously a labor of love by people who intensely understood and could effectively write for grade-school children. Believe it or not, that’s a hard combination to find. We contacted the authors—Richard and Debbie Lawrence—and discovered that God’s Design was born out of the concern of this mom and dad for their own children. Both Richard and Debbie are trained engineers, and they spent years developing this complete science curriculum. We loved what they had done so much—including “the pre-suppositional” approach to God's Word, the fun lessons and experiments, the scientist biographies, the fact that each book can be used by multiple ages, etc.—that we asked if they would allow AiG to come alongside them by publishing it with an updated design and enhancements that they were unable to make on their own. After getting to know one another and seeking the Lord's leading, we were both convinced of the wisdom of working together to take God’s Design to a whole new level of outreach. We are delighted that the fresh design has turned out even better than expected and is now receiving awards from such publications as THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE magazine and PRACTICAL HOMESCHOOLING magazine. It's an amazing curricula.”

More by authors


…The books in this series all reflect a Christian worldview, including a young-earth view of creation. …Hands-on experiments and activities are built into every lesson. …The activities and experiments include step-by-step instructions and are designed to teach (the) scientific method as children observe, record information, discuss, and form conclusions. …Textbooks are printed in full-color with numerous, high-quality illustrations and excellent graphics. (Answers in Genesis) has also made good use of color to highlight different portions of the lesson, making it easy to spot sections to be used with different students. These features make this series a practical choice for Christian homeschooling families as well as for classroom teachers in Christian schools. …I like this combination of information with experiments and activities, plus questions to ensure understanding. The variety of activities effectively reaches children with different learning styles.

Thank you also for this curriculum. My children(8 altogether , 5 in school) enjoy studying together, although they are not the same ages. I have looked for and tried other programs to give them the opportunity to do that , but God's Design has been the one program that has made it possible for me without the frustration of breaking down the material for myself . I can appreciate the time you all put in to do that for me. I appreciate the challenge you present to my children to grow and learn by making them think and search out information for themselves. Thank you for giving us science with God in mind.

This is the second year I have used your ‘God’s Design for ...’ Science curriculum. While I liked the older black and white books, the new colorful books with cd supplement are WONDERFUL. I use them for my 5th, 6th, and 7th graders and they like them better than any other Science text that we have used.

Thank you for providing a Science program with a Biblical worldview that is homeschooler friendly.

I just wanted you to know I am so thrilled with the new edition of your God’s Design curriculum. My children and I are using your “physical world” set. We all love how God is the author of all this and He is so weaved into all of the pages!!! I so appreciate the color pages—the new layout for younger children and older children. I love the supplement CD that comes with it. We enjoy doing the experiments—they are very doable and friendly. I have used other science programs in the past—this is my first year to use AIG’s science. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I am enjoying the time we have together to do our science lessons. I just told my husband, “I love science this year.” I know it is because I am using your program now. It is very easy to understand and user friendly. Thank you for working so much to update this. Who knew I could love learning about and teaching about the physical world!!! GREAT JOB on this curriculum—keep it coming!!!

We have the ‘God's Design for Science’ series and love it! We used it this past year for our K and 7th graders and will be using them again next year for K, 1st and 8th. LOVE that they are so versatile and have different levels of learning so that you can get one set that lasts from K-8th grades. There are many opportunities to take lessons and do a unit study or spend extra time on a topic that especially interests your children (or you!) as well. Highly recommend them.
