Fearless 'Body Science' and Puberty Education

Elementary classroom and PE teachers are often surprised to learn that they are expected to deliver comprehensive 'body science' and puberty lesson to Elementary students. This 3-hour workshop will help support and prepare teachers to meet the needs of their students, and families. Teachers will: 
• have a chance to explore their values, attitudes and beliefs
• develop their ability to discuss safety, types of touch, and the scientific names for body parts with young students
• integrate new knowledge about puberty changes into their existing lessons
• increase their comfort with the language of sexuality, and
• explore the new Physical & Health Education curriculum
