metabolism, hunger, and ea ng well. We also showed two Discovery
Educa on Videos called Puberty for Girls: Amazing Changes, inside and out
and the Companion One for boys, but only showed the first sec ons dealing
with physical changes.
We also addressed various topics (ie: why you need gym strip as you get
older) throughout the year as the topics arose. We addressed how ea ng
healthy affects your physique and how bodies develop at different rates,
affec ng height, strength of muscles, etc.
Teachers are confident that they have met the learning outcomes using
these resources.
Here are the outcomes:
Grade 4 C3 describe the physical changes that occur during puberty (e.g., height,
weight, muscle development, body shape, oily skin, body odour).
Grade 5 C3 describe the physical, emo onal, and social changes associated with

At Skaha Lake Middle, we adapted materials in discussion with other
schools. The main resources we used to create our own powerpoint’s and
lesson plans included:
1) Several reps shared powerpoint’s from other district teachers. Shona
Becker (SMS), and Robyn Richter’s (McNicoll) powerpoint presenta ons
became the base of the powerpoints we shared with our students. We
added resources from various websites and a purchased powerpoint
program. All of those resources are listed below:
2) We purchased a sexual educa on unit with lesson plans and a slide show
from Teachers Pay Teacher.com -- (Mrs. S) cost $26, and we used por ons
of this in our powerpoints and u lized some of the ac vi es. (We shared
copies with the other schools as well)

The sessions were comprised of two seventy-five minute mul -media lessons featuring

rela onships. More specifically some of the items addressed included conversa ons
centered on sexual, emo onal, and physical abuse, the neurobiology of substance abuse
and addic ons, bullying, and interpersonal violence. The group sizes never exceeded
thirty students. In most instances the students were pulled from Physical Educa on
classes. In each instance a teacher was present in the room with the presenter for each
session. In total, 15 presenta ons were made using this model. The Healthy
Rela onships component of the curriculum was delivered at a different me and made
to the Grade 10’s only. This year’s grade 9’s will receive the Healthy Rela onships
