If you’re a high school student who needs information for a report, a health teacher looking for illustrations to use in the classroom, or just someone who’s interested in learning a little more about how your body works, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve identified easy-to-understand Web sites that have what you’re looking for.
Whether you’re a middle school teacher looking for ways to present the always-touchy subject of sex education to students, or you’re a parent who’s looking for the right way to tell your curious child how babies are made, use this section to find sites that provide this information in terms that kids can relate to.
- At a time when hormones are raging, young students can turn this topic into an opportunity for comic relief in the classroom if it’s not presented in an appropriate way. If you teach health education or biology, you’ll find many ideas on the Web sites in this guide to help prevent this from happening.
- Although most youth-oriented educational Web sites are designed so that kids can navigate them independently, the sensitive nature of this topic necessitates that an adult be present when children are surfing the sites in this section. That way, you can answer questions and discuss any issues that arise.
The Web sites spotlighted in this section provide valuable information on human reproduction suitable for medical students and professionals including obstetricians and research scientists.
- If you’re not interested in paying for a subscription to a peer-reviewed journal but still want to stay abreast of the latest research in the field, be sure to take advantage of the free online access to abstracts and the full-text feature article of the month made available by many journals.
