This package is a fun, but detailed look into the grade 1 Ontario curriculum as it pertains to Human Development and Sexual Health. You will have a wealth of activities and worksheets at your disposal that will allow your students to gain knowledge and think of the issues involving body parts, the five senses, and proper hygiene. Included in the section on body parts is an independent and safe way to discuss and describe their genitalia. There are two worksheets solely focused on that topic. Informational pages are also a part of this package that includes teaching about deficiencies within our senses and how our senses work.
