Human Growth Development and Sexuality Units

Lessons for 5th-12th graders

Students, grades 5 - 12, learn skills and knowledge to make personal decisions about healthy relationships and sexual and reproductive health. Grade-level expectations and information about PSD's new human growth and development unit are available below for you to look over.

At PSD, we value home to classroom communication and encourage you to have a conversation with your student's teacher to answer questions you may have about the lessons.
