We're Growing Up!, Grades 5-8
We're Growing Up!, Grades 5-8 - DVD
This reassuring program presents facts about puberty in a context of self-respect and self-confidence. We're Growing Up! is designed for a combined audience of boys and girls. The narrator talks comfortably and matter-of-factly about human growth patterns (starting with a baby's rapid growth in the womb) and moves quickly through to the subject at hand — adolescence. A review of male and female anatomy and sexual development and an emphasis on responsible choices will be starting points for classroom discussion. A lively cast of young teenagers and sensitive artwork round out this production.
. "The Growing Up! videos are exactly what we need. They're perfect. They're age-appropriate and cover everything the students need to know. The artwork is clear and well-organized." — Sue Howard, Health Education Consultant, Moraga School District, Moraga, California
