Let’s Take a Look


Changes during puberty

Physical Development

  • Adolescence is the second-fastest period of physical growth. (you are adolescents)

  • Puberty is the time when youth start developing physical characteristics of adults of your gender.

  • Usually starts between the ages of 8 and 14.

  • Girls typically begin puberty earlier than boys do, but this is not always the case.

Physical Development

  • Pituitary Gland sends messages to our bodies.

  • Hormones are the messages sent to our reproductive systems.

The Story About Change

  • At the onset of puberty, our pituitary gland inside our brain begins to send tiny messengers, called hormones, throughout our body.

  • Females have two small, almond-shaped organs called the ovaries, which contain thousands of tiny eggs.

  • These glands begin making estrogen, which is the hormone responsible for many of the changes in the female body during puberty, including growing hair, growth spurt, and growing breasts.

The Story About Change

  • Inside one of the ovaries, an egg will begin to grow. When it reaches the surface of the ovary, it pops through and travels through one of the Fallopian tubes.

  • Eventually, it will reach an organ which is shaped like an upside-down pear, called the uterus, which will have become

  • lined with blood and tissue, which serve to protect the egg if it becomes fertilized.

  • If an egg is fertilized, a woman has become pregnant.

The Story About Change

  • How does fertilization occur?

  • A male adolescent has two reproductive organs, called testicles, which produce a male hormone called testosterone.

  • These organs also produce sperm, which are tiny male cells which join with the egg to cause fertilization.

The Story About Change

  • How does the sperm get to the egg?

  • Another sex organ, called the penis, will become stiff, or erect, when there is increased blood flow, allowing the male cells to flow through a tube called the urethra, where it may eventually swims to the join the female's egg.

Answer Together

Human Sexual Development

At the onset of puberty, our ___________ gland inside our brain begins to send tiny messengers,

called ___________ , throughout our body. Females have two small, almond-shaped

organs called the ___________ , which contain thousands of tiny ___________ . These

glands begin making ___________ , which is the hormone responsible for many of the

changes in the female body during puberty, including ___________ , ___________ , and

___________ . Also, inside one of the ovaries, an _________ will begin to grow. When it

reaches the surface of the ovary, it pops through and travels through one of the ___________

tubes. Eventually, it will reach an organ which is shaped like an upside-down pear, called the

___________ , which will have become lined with ___________ and ___________ ,

which serve to protect the egg if it becomes fertilized. If an egg is fertilized, a woman has

become ___________ .

How does fertilization occur? A male adolescent has two reproductive organs, called

___________ , which produce a male hormone called ___________ . These organs also

produce ___________ , which are tiny male cells which join with the egg to cause fertilization.

How does the sperm get to the egg? Another sex organ, called the ___________ , will

become stiff, or ___________ , when there is increased blood flow, allowing the male cells to

flow through a tube called the ___________ , where it may eventually swims to the join the

female's egg.

What if an egg is not fertilized? Another process will occur, called ___________ , or

"having your period." Approximately once a month, if the egg is not fertilized, the lining of

blood and tissue will descend through a small opening, called the ___________ , and into

the vagina. This menstrual fluid will flow out of the body for approximately three to five days.

Many girls at this time may feel abdominal cramps, occasional fatigue, headaches, and even

fluctuations in moods. These symptoms are called premenstrual syndrome, or ___________

for short. Maintaining a healthy diet and moderate exercise can help ease the effects of this

cycle of life.
