Lesson 2


Most teens choose to wait until marriage to have sexual activity. 


Character Trait: Awareness of self worth

Awareness is knowing who I am in relation to others in my family, school, and other groups helps me to choose what character traits I will work to develop further so I will be able to more fully enjoy family and friends throughout my lifetime.  


Through class activities and discussions students will realize the truth about research based sexual activity among their peers with medically accurate facts, statistics and research results. Students will discuss the psychological, emotional, social, financial, and educational consequences of sexual activity, and how their future marriages and children may be affected. Discussions will include the influences of the media and our culture that lead us to believe the myth that sexual activity is the norm for teens. The message “most teens are choosing not to have sex” is emphasized.

Students will: 

  • Review the previous lesson 

  • Share and learn about their positive attributes 

  • Define the difference between personality traits and character traits 

  • Realize that each individual has much to offer to the whole of a group, especially when tasks are needing to be accomplished 

  • Define respect and  acceptance
