As we've discussed in class, the consequences of sexual activity are numerous - pregnancy, STDs, health risks, emotional stress, etc... Often, teenagers don't consider the fact that the consequences are real, nor do they see them as serious. Many times, they even take a "it won't happen to me" attitude. However, there is only one guaranteed way of avoiding consequences such as getting an STD - abstain from sexual activity.
Your turn: Today, you will create a colorful and informative pamphlet to promote abstinence. Your Pamphlet will include the following:
- Catchy title
- an opening paragraph that promotes abstinence
- 7 different consequences of sexual activity
- 7 different types of STDs
- the symptoms, treatment, and effects of each STD
