Family Life and Sexual Health, Grades 4, 5, and 6, Lesson 11

F.L.A.S.H.

Activity
1. Explain, again, why you are doing this lesson and unit.
As you explained in Lesson 1, reiterate that you are doing this unit so that they will have
correct information about things like bodies and growth; so that they will feel good about
growing up; so that they'll feel more comfortable asking questions of their parents or
doctors; so that they'll understand and appreciate themselves, their families and one
another; and so that they will not be as likely to ever be sexually abused.
2. Describe names, purposes, and locations of male reproductive organs.
Use the transparencies or, better yet, draw so that you can introduce one part at a time
and so that your drawing won’t exactly duplicate the worksheets your students will be
filling out later in the lesson.
Name and explain the functions of the parts of the male reproductive system. Here is
scripting, to read in advance and paraphrase:
Let me describe how most people’s bodies are made. But know that individual
differences are pretty common.
Side view of the male: This is a side view of the male reproductive system. On the
outside he has two parts. Can anyone name them? That's right, 'penis' and 'scrotum.'
The job of the scrotum is to hold the “testicles” or “testes” at the proper temperature –
lower than 98.6 degrees – for making sperm. The scrotum will move toward or away
from the body to keep it at a lower temperature.
Who knows the testicles’ other job, besides producing sperm? They also make male
hormones to give him a deeper voice, broader shoulders, and all the other
characteristics of an adult male body.
Sperm are made in the testes and then move into the epididymis which is a long tube
tightly coiled into the back of the scrotum. The sperm stay there for 2-3 months while
they mature.
Then they travel up into his body through a tube called a vas deferens. He’s got two,
one leading from each epididymis. The sperm travel, through a vas deferens, past his
bladder (where urine or “pee” is stored), and into the tube that will carry them out of his
body, the urethra. The urethra is the tube that runs through his penis. In the male, the
urethra has two jobs: urination (part of the urinary system), and ejaculation (part of
reproductive system).On the way, the sperm gather fluids we call semen. These
