About this Resource

In Summer’s Day, we see one Australian girl’s awkward transition into a teenager. Summer’s mother isn’t around when she gets her first period, so she navigates becoming a woman, and her body image troubles, with the help of her best friend Mackenzie.

The free Summer’s Day Teaching Toolkit explores the content and themes in Summer’s Day, including menstruation, puberty and body image. It can be used as a standalone resource, or to complement a school’s health education and puberty programs. The 10 learning tasks in the resource link to areas of the curriculum including:

  • Critical and Creative Thinking
  • English
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Intercultural Capability
  • Media Arts
