Body Image Lesson Plans

Youth are bombarded with images of different body types for many different sources and it's up to adults to educate them about different body types. Teens need help understanding that there is no "normal" body type and that those portrayed most in the media are not reflective of the general population.

The article that accompanies it covers answers to common questions about the penis and testicles, breasts, vulva and vagina. The lesson concludes with teens identifying where they can find reliable sources of information.
