Fantastic science experiments and projects! I want to be a homeschooler whose kids do fun and engaging projects and not only book work in science. This text gives students fun activities with materials ACTUALLY found around the house. Other families have been thrilled with our projects and plan to buy this text. After you make the lung and diaphragm model you will know why!

Our kiddos are loving Behold and See 4! We just finished the Skeletal system. We went to our local small town butcher to get a beef femur. They cut it in half for us to check out the diagram in our book. It was the coolest thing…even for mom and dad.

My daughter is 10 and can name the organs and what they do together! (Her older siblings have made this Human Body Felt Project but hers is the best 😁)

My daughter completed "Planning a Healthy Meal" from Behold & See 4 and we are serving the meal tonight to celebrate the feast of the Presentation of our Lord.
