“Am I normal?” was the question most students asked a local puberty educator. Health and puberty education is critical, especially starting at a young age. Teaching these topics informs children of many subjects: the understanding that bodies are different, disabilities, anatomy, sexual orientation, gender identity, consent, safety, and more. These topics teach students to respect and care for one another and, most importantly, themselves. This research project aims to distribute resources to parents and educators to teach their children the information necessary to lead healthy lives. The resources to disseminate include relevant books, curriculums, and online resources that are safe and engaging for elementary school students.
