The Coddling of EG-Baby

This The Coddling of EG-Baby activity & project also includes:

Preteens practice parenting an egg for an entire week as an exercise in responsibility. In this particular version of a classic activity, your nurturers keep a baby log, look for a job and calculate costs for supporting a little one, and write a reflection essay about the social, economic, emotional effects of caring for another human. If you do not have the time for this in-depth activity, consider introducing it as if students were going to parent for a week and let the discussion begin!
