Our Whole Lives for 5th Graders


This ten-workshop curriculum is designed to help children ages nine through twelve to gain the knowledge, life principles, and skills they need to understand and express their sexuality in holistic, life-enhancing ways.

Like the other Our Whole Lives programs for different age groups, this comprehensive, developmentally appropriate program introduces key topics like values, body image, gender and sexual identity, peer pressure, and healthy relationships with sensitivity and inclusiveness.

This updated curriculum introduces new content, activities, perspectives, language, and resources for today's children. New topics include body image, social media/Internet, and consent, as well as an updated and deeper exploration of gender identity and roles. Many of the popular activities and discussion from the first edition are preserved here, alongside newer, more interactive activities.

Facilitators: Spencer Williams and Kassia Finn
