This is an amazing project that help students be creative, conduct research, and care for something other than themselves. I used to do an egg baby and it became messy, upset other teachers, and costly. I have the students bring anything to cloth/design their baby with.....yarn for hair, fabric for clothes, ribbons, or anything that will make their baby unique. This will take about 5 days. I typically start on a Wednesday and end on a Tuesday. I do assign the pictures as homework and have an alt assignment for students who do not have access to internet or a camera.
