In this unit students will learn about the different modes of reproduction in both the plant and animal world. Humans will be used as the case study and the reproductive organs will be identified and labelled. The role of the organs will also be discussed. The topic will include sexual reproduction in humans, fertilisation and the embryonic development. Students will then learn about puberty in boys and girls with a focus on menstruation. The aim is to create a safe environment where students can ask questions to deepen their understanding of what to expect as we grow up. The focus tends to be student driven and this focus is usually on their bodies as teenagers and what will/is happening to their bodies in the next few years.
Discuss the different approaches to sexuality and family planing that make us Unique Individuals.
