This class was designed for mixed (males and females) groups. Students are given the exact same presentation regardless if a school chooses to separate genders.
It is our philosophy that students should be educated about basic changes that occur during puberty for both sexes. We provide an excellent knowledge base which teachers and families are encouraged to extend.

Questions surrounding puberty are encouraged and are answered in a scientific, tactful manner or are redirected to the classroom teacher or the student’s family.

Topics NOT covered in this class include sexual intercourse, abortion, contraception, sexually transmitted infections, homosexuality, and pregnancy.

The focus of this class is exclusively puberty, not sex or reproduction.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

All classes are aligned to the Common Core Standards.

National Framework Guidelines for Science Standards.
- By 5th grade…
• LS1A Structure and Function - Plants and animals have both internal and external structures that serve various functions in growth, survival, behavior, and reproduction. (Boundary: Stress at this grade level is on understanding the macroscale systems and their function, not microscopic processes.)
• LS1B Growth and Development of Organism - Reproduction is essential to the continued existence of every kind of organism. Plants and animals have unique and diverse life cycles that include being born (sprouting in plants), growing, developing into adults, reproducing, and eventually dying.

State Standards

New Colorado Standards
- SC09-GR.5-S.2-GLE.1 - All organisms have structures and systems with separate functions
- SC09-GR.5-S.2-GLE.2 - Human body systems have basic structures, functions, and needs
