Nearly all students have seen pregnant women and may have questions about human development. Intended for secondary students with mild to moderate mental disabilities, this lesson defines the process of pregnancy in a developmentally appropriate way. They define the term pregnancy, sort a collection of images depicting pregnant and not pregnant women, brainstorm differences they see, then discuss fetal development. The Miracle of Life by NOVA is suggested viewing.
Learners investigate the possible consequences of practicing a lifestyle of being sexually active. They work in groups to have discussion using the IDEA Problem Solver handout. The statistics surrounding teen pregnancy are shared in order to help promote responsible sexual behavior.
Students explore human development using Internet resources that contain text, drawings, photos, and video about human development. They research a trimester of pregnancy then create drawings to show what is happening to the fetus during the three months for which they are responsible.
