Yeah, bcos kids these days are doing it at such a younger age they should know the life-changing consequences.

Most of them know about it already kids are having sex younger and younger. Parents just need to teach younger kids about the birds and the bees. I remember I had sex ed in 5th grade and then a couple other times throughout 6th-8th grade

Even if we don't teach them...they're gonna find out sooner or later.
Actually in todays society, they're bound to find out by 5th grade..

As long as you show them some STD pictures with chlamydia and some other STD's
on a penis or something......grossed out my whole health class

NO NO and NO...
Firstly legal age for sex comes nowhere near in elementary... why should they need to know about it?
Second (at least in Canada) its a federal offense to have sex under 14... even consensual
Third - many parents get pissed at schools if they do that in elementary... cuz even if its only Gr. 7's that will spread to 6's and 5.... so on and that is getting way too young

Well, I started classes in 4th grade where I live.
And likewise, elfy, it's illegal in the US to have sex until 14 (minimum, in some states it's 18.) with ANYONE, minor or not. However, that doesn't change the fact that it's happening. I know a couple kids who got kicked out of school for having sex ON THE SCHOOL BUS during the ride to a field trip. At the age of 13.
They already know what sex is. Hell, I knew what it was before I even got to school. Knowing and doing are two separate things. I know what cigarettes are, but I've never tried them. In fact, knowing what they are PREVENTED me from trying them, it gave me enough information to make a choice.

Kids don't have sex from learning about it in school, just as they don't do drugs because of Joe Camel. They have sex because a) it's an enjoyable experience, or b) because their friends are all doing it, and they don't want to be left out. It's the same as adults. They're growing up anyway, might's well give them the information to make intelligent decisions about their lives.
