For Lower Middle School – 6th Grade

Down-to-earth and hands-on, these 6 sessions keep students involved through self-discovery and interviews with friends, parents or guardians, and class partners. Videos that open each lesson lead naturally to discussion. This lively curriculum creates the foundation for an informed commitment to healthy relationships. The 45-minute sessions cover:

  • Deciding on Your Future
    Students watch teens talk about the importance of making smart decisions. Students then discover how decisions help them reach their goals, especially when linked with determination.
  • Figuring Out Friendships and Relationships
    This lesson begins by looking at the qualities of a good friend, then progresses to understanding crushes, infatuations and true love through a fun-filled activity. Learning respect for the other person is part of this lively session.
  • Avoiding Unhealthy Relationships
    Students discover how emotional needs may leave them vulnerable to unhealthy relationships. Included is separate discussion about preventing sexual violence/abuse and how to get help if they or someone they know has been a victim. An engaging activity helps students build self-esteem by discovering their personal uniqueness.
  • Identifying the Risks
    Students may know about some risks associated with sexual activity, but this session presents a frank examination of teen pregnancy and STDs, as well as the emotional effects often not discussed. From this study, students see the need for compassion.
  • Choosing the Best Way
    Risks provide reasons why students should avoid sexual activity. This session’s study of sexual risk avoidance also offers the positive benefits of sexual delay. At the end of this session students have a chance to reflect upon how choosing to delay sexual activity can benefit their health and future.
  • Learning How to Say NO
    Once students choose sexual delay, they need tools to help them resist pressures from friends and others to become sexually active. Students get the chance to try out different ways to say “No” and keep a friendship. Students also learn that courage helps them stand up and stick with their decisions.
