  • Let’s watch a video that talks about how it feels to grow up as a female & male. It will explain some of the changes that will take place in girls & boys. It is called “We’re Growing Up.” Show the video. Ask if there are any questions or comments? Clarify confusing topics. Tell the students individual differences are normal. Emphasize the important responsibility of taking care of their bodies. A big part of the changes during puberty is the development of the reproductive system. Just because a person’s body is capable of making a baby does not mean he or she is ready to be a parent. You have a lot of growing and learning to do before you will be ready to be responsible for a baby . Remember you can always talk to your parents of other adults you trust if you ever have a questions or want more information about the changes you go through as you grow up. 5 th grade Lesson 2 (B-3 pg 38-40)
  • Show differences with the torso or overhead. It is important for girls to wipe themselves from the front to the back after going to the bathroom. This prevents germs from being wiped into the vagina and urethra. It is important for boys and girls to wash daily with soap and water. This keeps them clean and helps prevent body odor, especially during puberty when more sweat is produced. 5 th grade Lesson 2 (B-3 pg 39)
  • Let’s learn more about what happens inside a girl’s or women’s Body during her menstrual cycle or period or menses. 5 th grade Lesson 2 B-4 pg 49.
  • Distribute student activity sheet: “ Ovulation and Menstruation ” Display transparency “ Ovulation and Menstruation ” Have them get out red pink and blue color crayons or markers; complete worksheets to match transparency. Days 1-7 The menstrual flow, also called menses or a period, begins and usually lasts from three to seven days. The lining of the uterus thins. Color a red flow exiting the vagina. Days 7-14 The lining of the uterus begins to get thicker. Color a pink thin lining in the uterus. Day 14 An ovum (human egg cell) is released from one of the ovaries. Make a blue dot in 1 of the ovaries, then 1 inside of the Fallopian tube Days 14-17 The ovum travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus. If it is not fertilized it dies and passes out of the body. Make a of blue dots traveling down the Fallopian tube, uterus & exit the vagina Days 14-28 The lining of the uterus continues to thicken. Color the pink lining in the uterus to make it thicker. Day 1 The menstrual flow begins again, the lining of the uterus thins, the whole cycle repeats. Color a red flow exiting the vagina. 5 th grade Lesson 2 (B-4 pg 50)
  • Show glass with 2 – 6 ounces . It looks like there is more blood lost during menstruation than there really is. Some girls and women have cramps or other premenstrual symptoms. Each individual is different. During menstruation you can do any activity you want. Most girls and women have a period once a month from the time of puberty until around age 50 (except during pregnancy). After that, eggs are no longer released and a woman cannot have babies anymore. 5 th grade Lesson 2 (B-4 pg 51)
  • Until a girl is able to use a tampon, she will not want to swim during the days she has heavier flow. It might be easier to start with napkins and try tampons later once you are comfortable with your menstrual cycle and your body. A girl will need to wash her vulva and change sanitary pads frequently during menstruation in order to stay clean and avoid a noticeable menstrual odor. Typically, young girls are very anxious about the possibility of menstruation beginning unexpectedly while at school . There are sanitary items available in the nurse’s office if the unexpected happens. 5 th grade lesson 2 (B-4 pg 52)
