Maturation Science Unit: Quick Start

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.
