CONTENT

HUMAN REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

Reproduction is the process whereby living things like mammals give birth to young ones that look alike or resemble their parents . There is a need for reproduction so that there will be continued existence of human or mammals on the planet earth .

MALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

The male creature is the man . His  reproductive system is made up of the following organs

 

  • penis
  • Vas deferens (Sperm duct),
  • a pair of testes in a scrotal sac,
  • urethra
  • some associated glands.

 

FUNCTIONS OF THE MALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

  1. Testes – produces sperm.
  2. Urethra – carries sperm within the penis into the female organs.
  3. Scrotal sac – protect testes.
  4. Penis – introduces sperm into the vagina.
  5. Vas deferens – transfer sperm from testes to seminal vesicle.

 

FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

The female reproductive System

The female reproductive system consist of

  • the Ovaries,
  • Oviducts,
  • Uterus
  • vagina.

 

FUNCTIONS OF THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

  1. Ovaries – produces eggs.
  2. Oviduct – carries egg cells to the uterus.
  3. Uterus – receives and cares for developing foetus.
  4. Vagina – Outlet from the uterus or womb.

 

REPRODUCTION PROCESS

  1. Both male and female come together during sex.
  2. The sperm is released during intercourse and they swim towards the female egg cell (gametes or Ovum).
  3. This process is known as  fertilization.
  4. Fertilization leads to formation of  a zygote, which develops into a new offspring inside the uterus of the female.
  5. The zygote then develop to embryo.
  6. After nine months the female will give birth to a baby.

 

Presentation

 

The topic is presented step by step

 

Step 1:

The class teacher revises the previous topics

 

Step 2.

The class teacher also goes round to make sure that the notes are well copied or well written by the pupils.

He or she does the necessary corrections when and where  the needs arise.

 

Evaluation

  • Explain the process of reproduction
  • Mention three female sex organs
  • Write out out four male sex organs
  • What is reproduction ?
