ALIKE AND DIFFERENT
During puberty, the child’s body undergoes many physical and emotional transformations.
The different corporealities open up to an unknown world and questions arise: What is the uterus? What about the clitoris? Why do I wake up with wet underwear? Are all penises the same size? What is my vulva like?

Alike and different is typically structured as a memory game, but where the pieces are not Disney characters or random drawings, but it allows to know the sexual organs and facilitates to talk about the growing body.
