Body Basics for Girls

Learning how their bodies grow, what changes to expect during puberty, and how to take care of themselves are valuable lessons for preteens. Body Basics offers those lessons in separate classes for girls ages 9-12 and boys ages 10-13. Both classes include informal, open discussions, a film presentation, and take home materials. Each class also includes a brief and simple introduction to the opposite sex. It is recommended that a parent or trusted adult accompany each preteen. By taking the class together, you and your preteen can continue these important discussions at home.
