Transcript of Y7 Reproduction - KS3 Science
development and growth of the fetus
Produce a problem page of your own for young people going through puberty.
L2: Reproductive Organs
L4: Sex & Fertilisation
Be able to describe the physical and emotional changes that take place during adolescence.
Be able to name the human sex cells and state where each is produced.
Discuss in groups how each other has changed,
in their lifetimes so far.
Write your ideas on sugar paper
LETS SHARE OUR IDEAS!!
Cut and rearrange the keywords to describe their meaning
Use some of these
in your response:
Recently, I seem to have developed red spots all over my face. I'm too ashamed to go out and I don't know what they are or what to do about them. Please help!
What could you say to this person?
Use scientific knowledge in your answer.
L6: Giving Birth
Pregnancy in Animals
Be able to recognise the structure of human male and female reproductive organs.
Be able to describe the functions of the human reproductive organs
Be able to explain how sperm and egg cells are adapted for their function.
Be able to state that sex cells contain half the genetic information and are called gametes.
Be able to explain why sperm cells are kept outside the body
Egg and Sperm
In small groups draw 2 outlines of the human body.
On one draw on the
female reproductive organs
and on the other draw on the
male reproductive organs
– as you understand them!
Label the diagram fully
Structures and functions of the reproductive parts
Where are sperm and eggs are produced?
How is each sex cell adapted for its function?
Add annotations to the diagrams to explain function of each structure.
This is where sperm are made.
Sperm contain genetic information from the male.
Where will boys produce sperm as they go through puberty?
Testes (or testicles)
Where will girls release eggs from as they go through puberty?

What is fertilisation?
What would be a better explanation?
This is a tube that delivers the sperm into the vagina.
It is also used during excretion to remove urine from the bladder.
This is a skin covering to protect the testicles.
This become erect and is inserted into the vagina during sexual intercourse.
The sperm will travel along the urethra inside during ejaculation.
Makes a fluid that is slightly alkaline to neutralise the acidic conditions of the vagina, helping the sperm survive for longer. It is released during ejaculation.
This gland produces a fluid to help the sperm swim more easily once they have entered the vagina. It is released during ejaculation.
This is the tube the sperm travel along from the testes during the ejaculation stage of sexual intercourse.
A muscular organ containing a lining that can accept a
egg cell (zygote).
It will help the zygote attach its placenta, and develop it into an embryo, foetus, then a baby.
The muscle contracts during childbirth to push the baby out.
Barrier between the uterus and the vagina.
Contains an acid mucus plug to prevent sperm or microbes entering.
Opens during a period to allow menstrual blood to leave the uterus.
Accepts the penis during sexual intercourse.
Allows a path for the menstrual blood to leave during a period.
Contains immature eggs.
Each month, one egg matures and is released from the ovary
Also called the Oviduct, it transports a mature egg from the ovary to the uterus.
Successful fertilisation usually happens here, in the fallopian tube.

At this stage, cells start to specialise (they begin to change into different types of cells).
Each cell type will have a different role, e.g. the outer cells will help from the placenta
The embryo has specialised to the point where we can make out different parts of what will be a baby, e.g.; the eyes, heart, brain and spinal cord, umbilical cord, and small stubs that will be limbs
The fetus has many more of the features we associate with babies. They have developed full limbs with fingers and toes, ears and nose have taken shape and the brain has grown much larger. Internal organs (lungs, liver, kidneys, etc) are also developing.
At this stage the baby is fully developed and is ready to be delivered.
The baby may spend the next few weeks developing further, but it can't wait too long otherwise there will be difficulties during delivery
The egg has just been fertilised by the sperm.
The cell has genetic material (DNA) from both its mother and father.
Morula (very simple embryo)
The zygote has undergone cell division.
Each cell divides into two each time.
From one (1) cell, two (2) cells are made, then four (4) cells, then eight (8) cells, and so on.

Extended Learning Outcomes
At full term (38-42 weeks), the fetus is fully grown and moves into a suitable position for birth.
of birth is the signal that the fetus is ready to be born. The mucus plug in the cervix softens and may trickle out. The amnion will split and the amniotic fluid may gush or trickle out.
Once the cervix has
(widened) enough (10cm), the crown of the fetus' head will start to push through the cervix and birth canal (vagina) with each contraction.
Once the head has made its way through, the shoulders are the next challenge (they have to twist around to exit).
After this, the rest of the body slips out.
With the baby finally out, the hardest part is over, but there is still the last stage to come.
