Human Reproduction


Our Human Reproduction lesson plan teaches students about how human reproduction works, including the biological processes involved and how sexual reproduction works. Students also learn related vocabulary.


Our Human Reproduction lesson plan introduces students to human reproduction, though other organisms are discussed, the lesson is mostly focused on human reproduction. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create a skit in which one role will be the female egg cell, the other role will be the male sperm cell; they “speak” to each other, discussing the process of human sexual reproduction. Students are then asked to present their skits to the class. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain sexual reproduction and define the terms related to sexual reproduction, human and otherwise.
