About This Resource

This activity helps children learn to integrate the sexual parts of their bodies with the rest of their bodies. The activity reinforces that the child is the owner of his/her body and must take responsibility for it. The teacher acknowledges that the private parts of the body are often ignored or given silly names, then provides the correct names. Next the children are given an opportunity to draw male and female external genitals on outline figures. The teacher makes clear that these parts are private, that they may feel good when they are touched, that touching is done only in private, and that, except for health reasons, no one has the right to touch someone else's private parts without permission.
