Behold and See 5
David Beresford, Ph.D.

Behold and See 5 is an up-to-date, Catholic science program written by Dr. David Beresford, a college professor, working scientist, and homeschooling father. Written for Catholic homeschooling families, Behold and See 5 combines a stunning, full-color interior with hands-on experiments and engaging scientific content from a Catholic perspective.

Since faith and reason are inseparable, the main goal of Behold and See 5 is to teach up-to-date scientific knowledge in the context of our Holy Faith. The text provides an in-depth, conceptual understanding of selected topics from biology, human anatomy, earth science, chemistry, and physics. It gently communicates the richness and order of God’s creation, and reflects on the proper use of scientific knowledge for the glory of God.

Besides being Catholic and current, Behold and See 5 is one of the most engaging science texts you will ever use! Dr. Beresford’s enthusiasm for science can be clearly seen in the text’s conversational style, the abundance of hands-on experiments, and the eagerness with which he helps students actually “do science” for themselves. A working scientist himself, Dr. Beresford will soon have your child digging for worms, recording weather data, and organizing experiment results in graphs and tables.

An indexed glossary is included. Activities can be selected as materials, time, and ability allow. Non-consumable—this text may be used over and over again! Ten chapters, 226 pgs. Full color throughout! Softcover. 8½”x11”

The accompanying Student Workbook provides kid-friendly exercises, tests, and a complete answer key to complete this full-year course.
116 pgs. Softcover. 8½”x11”

“I am SO happy with Behold and See 5. After years of complicated science curriculums that appeared fun and exciting, but always seemed to fall flat, Behold and See 5 is a breath of fresh air. It is simple, but beautiful (as all of the CHC materials seem to be!). The pictures and explanations are outstanding and easy for independent study, as well as for family discussion. The workbook that goes with the text is equally wonderful with plenty of assignments to reinforce the topic being studied. The activities and experiments are easy and can be done independently (or with a younger sibling tagging along). We especially loved the worm activities and were given a "thumbs up" from God when we woke up that rainy school day to find huge earthworms had gotten into our basement! God brought the worms right to our doorstep on the very day we needed them for our CHC activity! The best part of Behold and See 5 is that it has turned this science-dreading mom into a confident teacher this year. I love hearing..."MOM, did you know.....?" after my 5th grader reads his assignment. Thank you again for creating such simple, elegant materials!”

“This year we are using Behold and See 5 for our fifth-grade daughter's science curriculum. We have appreciated the variety of topics covered and feel that a sufficient amount of information is given for the student to learn about each topic. We love the author's conversational style of writing because it makes it so much more personal. The workbook goes along with the book so nicely and provides some great reinforcement of the material covered in the book. Finally, when we begin with a new book for a subject, our daughter will often ask us "Is this a Catholic book?" - because that is important to her. It is nice to be able to say "Yes, this book is written from a Catholic perspective." Thank you for providing such a lovely fifth-grade science book!”
