 Introduction to Reproductive Systems Review of Previous of Lesson � Briefly discuss main concepts of previous lesson about changes during puberty. � As a class list male and female changes during puberty. Content Bites: Changes in Both Males and Females � Growth spurt � Acne � Perspiration increases � Permanent teeth all in Male Changes (ages 10-16) � Broader shoulders � Muscle growth � Hair under arms, on face, chest and pubic area � Growth of penis and testicles � Sperm production begins � Larynx enlarges, voice deepens � Some breast enlargement may occur � Hairline recession may begin Female Changes (ages 9-16) � Broader hips � Narrower waist � Hair under arms and in the pubic area � External genitals enlarge � Growth of uterus and ovaries � Breast development � Ovulation occurs � Menstruation begins Overview of Today�s Lesson and Why It Is Relevant � Today we will be discussing the reproductive system. You will learn anatomy and functions of the reproduction system and how to properly care for your reproductive system. � It�s important to know the anatomy to better understand how your body works and to maintain your overall health and wellness.
 Function of the Reproductive System � Ask students what the function of the reproduction system? Content Bite: Book Definition (pg. 328): Consists of body organs that are involved in production of offspring. � Tell: Unlike other body systems, the male and female reproductive systems are not the same. In addition they require different care. 3. Male Reproductive System � Refer to page 329 in your text. � As a class go through and label and provide definitions for each part. Content Bite: A. Sperm-male reproductive cells. B. Seminal vesicles- } C. Prostate gland- }-- glands that produce seminal fluid that mixes with sperm to form semen. D. Cowper�s glands- } E. Urethra-a tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside of body. F. Penis-the external sexual organ. G. Testes-2 small glands that produce sperm. H. Scrotum-a sac that contains the testes. I. Vas deferens-tubes that extend from each epididymis to the urethra. J. Epididymis-network of tubes in which the sperm mature and are stored temporarily. K. Ejaculation-forces semen through the urethra and out of the body. 4. Female Reproductive System � Refer to page 330 in your text. � As a class go through and label and provide definitions for each part. Content Bite: A. Egg or Ova-female reproductive cells. B. Ovaries-contains ova, or eggs, and hormones that cause the eggs to mature. C. Fallopian tubes-carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. D. Uterus-or womb, shelters and nourishes the fetus. E. Endometrium-the lining of the uterus. F. Cervix-the opening of the uterus. G. Vagina-a muscular passageway from the uterus to outside the body. H. Ovulation-the process of releasing an egg cell from an ovary. I. Menstruation-the process of discharging blood and tissue from the uterus. J. Menstrual cycle-is the time from one menstruation to another. � Talk about a typical menstruation cycle pg. 331 Content Bite: Typical Menstrual Cycle: 1. Days 1 to 13 � Egg cell matures inside the ovary. 2. Day 14 � Ovulation occurs and a mature egg is released into the fallopian tubes. 3. Days 15 to 20 � Egg travels through the fallopian tube. 4. Days 21 to 28 � Egg enters the uterus, if egg is not fertilized after 7 days menstruation begins.
 Reproduction � Reproduction or the production of offspring requires fertilization. � What is fertilization? Content Bite: Fertilization is the union of the male and female reproductive system. 6. Caring for the Reproductive System � Refer to page 332. � Why is it important to care for your reproductive system? Content Bite: It is important because if you don�t you could develop problems such as infection and possible infertility. Also with proper care you can detect cancers early. � Have students go through male and female reproductive problems on page 332 and 333. � What are some ways to care for your reproductive system? Content Bite: Male Reproductive problems: � Testicular or prostate cancer-uncontrolled cell growth that destroys glands and surrounding tissue � Inguinal hernia-part of intestine pushes into the scrotum, caused by improperly lifting heavy objects � Sterility-inability to produce healthy sperm in sufficient numbers to reproduce � Enlarged prostate gland-a common problem associated with aging Female Reproductive Problems: � Premenstrual syndrome-physical and emotional changes before menstruation; headaches, moodiness, irritability � Toxic shock syndrome-rare but serious bacterial infection associated with tampon use � Infertility-inability to reproduce due to blockage in fallopian tubes or failure of ovaries to produce eggs � Vaginitis-infection of vagina; pain, itching, and discharge � Ovarian cysts-growths on outside of ovary � Cancer-can affect breasts, ovaries, uterus, and cervix
 Give handouts or study guides to students that may need extra help with understanding the material.
Checking For Understanding:
 . Summarize and Debrief Debriefing Review and Discussion Points Content � Have students� complete Concept mapping worksheet. Then go through as a class. Content Bites: Refer to answer key.
 � Have students get into groups of two. Give each group a set of shuffled Order Me Around cards. Have them correctly sequence the phases of the menstrual cycle. Content Bites: Menstrual cycle: menstruation, new lining forms, egg matures, ovulation, egg disintegrates
