Like walking on eggshells
15 February 2010 | by (the Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Kids have no idea of how all-encompassing it is to take care of a baby.

So, give them a taste of how it would be (so students won't choose to become pregnant in high school). The students are given an egg. This egg must be treated like a baby. It must (first and foremost) NEVER be left alone. This means that each student must keep the egg with themselves all the time (or, provide an egg-sitter).

Also, the egg is delicate (like a baby), so they have to treat it carefully. They will flunk the project if the egg "dies." Well, you see how it goes. It is lightly comical, lightly dramatic, and an interesting concept. Certainly better appreciated by the younger crowd.
