Chapter 2: Learning About Adolescence

This Chapter 2: Learning About Adolescence lesson plan also includes:

 The Native American symbol, The Circle of Life, represents life's spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional well being. By way of deep discussion, and two games, the instructional activity uses the Circle of Life to explore the stages of maturity, changes during adolescence, what they're looking forward to and what they're not, and how volition will help young adults not fall to peer pressure. Games challenge pupils to define vocabulary terms while matching words to their definition and ordering picture cards.
