Students in Child Development class will soon be caring for newborn "babies" represented by 10lb bags of flour. On October 26, at a gender reveal party during lunch, they each opened an envelope to find out the gender of their "baby." Pink and blue balloons, cupcakes, and laughter kicked off the two-week project. Each flour baby will be decorated and given a name complete with a birth certificate. Students will be assigned careers with a set income and tax bracket and will accordingly plan a budget to manage the expenses of daily living such as housing, transportation, and grocery bills. Additionally, they will have to keep an hourly log for seven days and deal with unforeseen situations – like sickness – that occur when caring for a baby. At the end of the project, they will each write a reflection on their experience.
