Reproduction, Inheritance, and Meiosis: Contraception Project – Day 1

After learning about sexual reproduction yesterday, with a focusing on fertilization, students worked with partners to learn about the hormones involved in sexual reproduction (BSCS book, pages 481-484).  Working in pairs, they completed a worksheet to help them make sense of the major hormones.  Next, they assigned a variety of birth control methods into categories using a list from the textbook on page 409.  Finally, students received a grading rubric to help them construct a birth control method brochure.  The reading assignment and brochure information is available in the slide deck for today.

Additional information about birth control methods is available in both English and Spanish at http://www.birth-control-comparison.info/.
