By Jordan Panos and Christian Joel
Don't feel sick about puberty. You should feel excited.
Bras are more than just underwear, they are necessary to keep breasts supported and to stop injury to the breast tissue while playing sports.

During puberty breasts can develop rapidly causing discomfort, sensitivity and even stretch marks.

Starting at around age 9, girls begin to gain about 17% to 18% of their adult height. Most girls grow fastest about six months before they start their first period.

On average, boys begin going through puberty a little later than girls, usually around age 11 or 12.

Are you in that awkward time where you are changing, you don't want to talk about it and you just want to be alone? That is Adolescence, the time in between childhood and your life as an adult. It starts at about 10 to 13 and ends at around 18.

This part of the prezi will tell you about the physical, social and emotional changes in boys during puberty.
During puberty, boys' shoulders will become wider, boys' bodies will become more muscular and there will be hair under their arms, chest and pubic area.
What Causes Puberty?
Puberty is caused by a hormone called testosterone produced by the testicles. Testosterone plays a key role in puberty, it increases bone mass, promotes muscle and hair growth.
During puberty boys' facial skin will get oilier and pimples or acne may start to appear on the face, upper back or upper chest.
The doctors and medical advisers always say this: don't squeeze, pick, or pop your pimples!!! Acne or pimples are caused by clogged pores which is brought on by hormones. Puberty hormones stimulate the glands in the skin, including the sweat glands under boys' arms. When sweat and bacteria on the skin combine, body odour is created. This can be combated with deodorant.

It can be difficult coping with early physical changes or frustrating waiting for them to happen.
Sexual thoughts

Boys may start to feel curious about sex and about bodies of people they are attracted to. These thoughts may drive a boy to be sexually attracted to people that they would want to be more than 'just friends' with.
Boys may begin to have erections because they are thinking about a girl or something that is making them happy. This could happen overnight and boys may have wet dreams.
Mood swings
Boys' hormones may make it more difficult for them to control their emotions, and boys' can go from feeling completely happy to having a completely different emotion just a few minutes later.
Boys can have positive and negative mood swings. For example boys may feel happy or excited for no reason. This is known as positive mood swing. If a boy feels angry and depressed for no reason this is known as negative mood swing.
Different emotions and new attitude
Boys may start to feel unfamiliar emotions. Boys may feel more anxious than normal, more dizzy, or maybe boys are finding that they have more complicated feelings about friends, parents, and members of the opposite sex.

Boys may start to have a different attitude towards their parents and even their friends. Boys may feel that they have to withdraw from their familiar environment (home).

Boys may also start to have anxiety attacks.

Boys will feel a need to have more control over their life and actions.

Boys may start to withdraw from their parents and prefer to hang out with friends.
Different emotions and new attitude
Different feelings
Boys' will start to feel more intensity. This is a sign that boys bodies are adjusting to new levels of hormones.

Boys' may start to feel more depressed. This could be triggered because of too much homework, a math test that is coming up or any family or friend issues.

Boys' may also start to feel more tired. This is most probably due to the many changes happening in their bodies
Growing and changing:

Social changes during puberty
Boys have many social changes during puberty and this is a time of self discovery where they try to figure out who they are.
This journey of self discovery is influenced by their school, friends, family, hobbies, environment and media, these are just a few examples.

During puberty your penis and testes grow longer and wider. Hair will grow in the pubic area. Boys will start to experience erections. Erections are created when a boy’s penis is filled with blood and becomes hard and stiff. Erections are generally caused by thinking about sex. If a man thinks about sex in his sleep he ejaculates. This is called a wet dream. Only some men have them and if they do it only happens during puberty.

Boys like to hang out in public places more and want to be away from family and be with friends. They want to look cool and (depending on the crowd that they are in) might be peer pressured to do good or bad things.
Personal Feelings
Puberty makes teens feel gross and disgusting but it is just normal. This makes some become naughty because they can't control themselves and want to feel good. During puberty boys become more mature and take a bigger interest in girls. They want to look cool and become popular by having girlfriends.
Face and Voice
Boys will grow facial hair.
Boys' voices will also change. Before a boy reaches puberty, his larynx is pretty small and his vocal cords are kind of small and thin. That's why his voice is higher than an adult's. But as he goes through puberty, the larynx gets bigger and the vocal cords lengthen and thicken. It happens in both boys and girls, but the change is more obvious in boys. Girls' voices only deepen by a couple of tones and the change is barely noticeable. Boys' voices, however, start to get a lot deeper. First there will be a crack in the voice. A boy might have difficulty controlling it and he'll make all sorts of odd noises when trying to speak. Then his voice will deepen.
the facial bones begin to grow. Cavities in the sinuses, the nose, and the back of the throat grow bigger, creating more space in the face in which to give the voice more room to resonate.
