Pregnancy Stages Teacher Resources

Scientists understand a lot about the infinitely large universe and the minute parts of the tiniest atoms—and yet there is still so much about human life that is unknown. Take your health students through the lessons of life that we do know, including the stages of pregnancy and the importance of reproductive health.

An informative presentation includes diagrams and timelines for fetal development, and pairs well with a thorough and engaging video on the stages of pregnancy. High schoolers track a fetus’s development, week-by-week, with a health and science lesson.

Teach female students in your class about their reproductive health, sexuality, and healthy relationships with a unit plan ideal for a sex education course. A lesson plan provides learners with information and resources concerning their reproductive health.

At Lesson Planet, we want your instruction to be as relevant, sensitive, and informative as possible. Our teacher team has selected the following resources to fit the needs of any health classroom, and to open up a conversation about one of the most important phenomena on our planet.
