Characteristics of Middle School Students

Storyboard Text

  • Wait! Can I get a hug before you head out to meet your friends?
  • Erratic behavior, distancing from family
  • OMG, Mom! Everyone is looking! NO WAY!
  • Academic goals are secondary to social life/peer group
  • I would much rather be playing video games or hanging with my friends...
  • Dang..I wish I would hurry up and grow.
  • Boys' physical development lags behind girls. Uneven muscle/bone growth leads to awkwardness/lack of coordination
  • I've gotten so tall this year...I feel so awkward, like I'm all arms and legs..
