This packet guides students through a project where they learn the responsibilities of parenting through caring for a 5-lb flour "baby" for a 3-day/overnight period.
The bundle includes:
1 lesson plan and 1 packet with:
*What a Baby Costs Estimator/Actual Costs
*Flour Baby Reflections
*Teacher sign-in sheet
*Baby care log (24 hour period)
Before the project, you will need to purchase 1 bag of flour for each student. I book computer lab time so students can find and print a photo of a baby to use on their flour baby, and give them time to affix the photo and wrap the bag in plastic wrap to avoid accidents.
PLEASE NOTE: There is 1 in class day to make the flour babies, and the rest of the time in the 3 day period is the students independently carrying the flour babies. The flour babies return to class on day 3 to complete the project.
