Put young minds at ease

The clips in this series deal with the physical, emotional and social changes that happen during puberty. The series emphasises to young people that puberty is just a natural stage in a person’s life, with no one ‘normal’ experience. Students will discover that everyone changes and develops at different times and in different ways.

Teach puberty your way

The series also encourages flexibility in teaching and learning, with the inclusion of several clips about physical changes (males, females, combination) to cater for co-educational and single sex classes.

Discover all 6 full-length episodes free to share with your students.

Tackled with sensitivity, respect and humour, this series is honest and essential viewing for upper-primary students on their journey towards adolescence. Each episode comes with a pack of printable supporting resources for your lessons.

All the Changes

Change often equals uncertainty and this is never truer than for children approaching puberty. Leaving no awkward stone unturned – from hair to periods and erections – this video takes viewers through the physical, social and emotional hallmarks of puberty, ingraining the fact that there’s no shame in any of it.

episode 3

All the Changes – Females

Getting her first period is one of the most significant changes a girl will experience during puberty. Like reassurance from a big sister, this video considers the options available for managing this often confronting change, and looks at other features of female puberty including breast growth and female ‘wet dreams’.

episode 4

All the Changes – Males

Having his first ‘wet dream’ or unwanted erection can be an embarrassing and confronting experience for a boy entering puberty. Like wisdom from a big brother, this video goes through all the things a penis might do that it hasn’t done before as well as other changes that occur during male puberty, such as the deepening of a boy’s voice.

episode 5

All the Feels

The major physical changes of puberty can often overshadow the less visible but equally important changes going on below the surface, including the many social and emotional changes that girls and boys both experience. This clip covers methods of managing mood swings, the onset of sexual feelings and the natural curiosity to explore one’s changing body.

episode 6

Who Are You?

Going through puberty is challenging. But overcoming challenges brings new skills and strengths. At the end of puberty, not only do we have a bigger (and hairier and smellier!) body, but also newfound independence, resilience and courage to take into adulthood. This video recaps the wild ride of puberty and celebrates the achievement of coming through the other side.
