Understanding what is happening in our bodies in puberty is such an important part of growing up.
However, helping kids understand all the physical and emotional changes, and the new health concerns that come with puberty can sometimes be an awkward and uncomfortable experience for both students and teachers.
As We Grow – Classroom Activity Kit
by Stephanie Mitelman, M.A., CSE, AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator
As We Grow is a fun and interactive health activity that helps teachers share with their students all the physical, emotional and sexual transitions the students are going through or can expect.
Through all the giggles, they will learn about their own bodies and the bodies of their peers.
This kit is designed for an average classroom size of 30 students but can be modified to larger or smaller groups.
Students receive Changes cards, choose if boys, girls, or both will go through the change, and place it among the posters for the class to see.
This creates an engaged, friendly discussion around what they can expect during puberty.
This kit includes:
- 2 Body Posters (Boy and Girl)
- 39 Changes Cards
- Instructor Answer Key
Duration: 15-30 minutes
Recommended Level: Grades 4 – 6 (9 to 12 years old)
All playing pieces in kit are laminated so the game can be enjoyed by students over and over again.
