Step 2: Students watch a video about the menstrual cycle and answer questions in pairs.
Students are grouped in pairs so each are responsible for 2 questions:
- Why do women have a period?
- What happens at the beginning of the period?
- What happens in the middle of the cycle?
- What determines if women have or do not have a period?
