ONTARIO/BC TEACHERS...Can you relate to this?

“I have to cover the new Ontario Health Curriculum and I don’t know how I’m going to get through it. You mean I have to actually say the words penis and vagina ALOUD? And you want my Grade One students to be able to identify genitalia using correct terminology? I don't even know all the names myself, gulp. How am I going to teach this sensitive topic to 6 and 7 year olds when I don't feel comfortable with the subject matter? Do diagrams of private parts even exist? HELP! ”

Trust me when I say this unit goes where no other unit has ever gone before. It was carefully written to take the guess work and anxiety out of teaching the new Ontario/BC Health Curriculum. It will be a lifesaver for nervous teachers as well as a helpful guide for Health teachers, concerned parents, guidance counsellors or administrators that need a kid-friendly starting point to get a discussion going about private parts.

This resource covers the following Curriculum Expectations:

Ontario Health and Physical Education 2015

Grade One: Human Development and Sexual Health

*C1.3 identify body parts, including genitalia (e.g., penis, testicles, vagina, vulva), using correct terminology [PS]

British Columbia: Health and Career Education K to 7

Grade One: Safety and Injury Prevention

C7 use appropriate terminology to identify female and male private body parts

identify private body parts as being:

*parts that belong to you and shouldn’t be touched by or shown to others except for health or hygiene reasons

*parts that are covered by bathing suits or underwear on a diagram or model, use correct terminology to name the following parts of the female and male bodies: nipples/breasts, vulva/vagina, penis, testicles, buttocks (bottom, bum)

I created this unit because as a 19th year experienced teacher and mother of a Grade Two and a Grade Ten student, I strongly believe in the saying “knowledge is power.” Educating children about their bodies is the right thing to do. That said, just because a topic is mandated by the government does not mean that teachers are comfortable or knowledgeable about it.

This 74 page unit includes:
