Welcome to The Good and the Beautiful Maturation & Sexual Reproduction Science Unit
Before You Begin Studying Maturation
Our Maturation and Sexual Reproduction family-style science unit is simple to teach! Let’s look at what is included in your course and how to get started.
About the Topic of Maturation
Teaching children all about their growing bodies can be a difficult subject for parents to approach. Some families choose to teach this topic to each of their children individually, whereas others teach children together.
The goal for this course is for children to understand the changes taking place as they mature, learn how to care for their bodies, and additionally, discuss God’s beautiful design for reproduction.
Children enjoy learning in a loving and secure environment with open discussions about topics that might otherwise be uncomfortable. With a helpful Q&A section, parents can confidently teach their children about the beauty of growing up and becoming an adult.
Because every family is different, this unit is designed to be used at any age parents deems appropriate. Some parents may choose to introduce some of the concepts at an early age and save other lessons for later when their child is ready; other parents may feel that their child is ready to complete the entire unit.
You need only one copy of the Marine Biology unit for your family. Make copies of individual pages using the free PDF that was emailed to you after the purchase of the printed unit.
If you use this science course in a group setting, you must purchase a physical copy for each set of eight children in the class.
Please note: If you choose to return an unwanted unit or cancel an order, you will be charged the full amount for the PDF file; only the physical unit is refundable.
Maturation Unit Information
Each child needs a 1″ to 2″ 3-ring binder. Fill each binder with a few sheets of lined paper and blank white paper.
Your unit arrived unbound and shrink wrapped. With a little printing, cutting, and assembling now, lessons will be open-and-go when you are ready to teach. Watch this video for help organizing your science unit.
Cut apart the vocabulary words now, so they are ready to be placed on your science wall. The course tells you when to use these.
Lesson Mini Books
To assemble the mini books, cut them in half along the dotted lines, stack the pages together with the page numbers in the correct order, and staple twice along the left side.
New discoveries in all fields of science are ongoing. The Good and the Beautiful science units are reviewed and revised periodically to keep information as up-to-date as possible.
