Last night was Wendy’s night for Boo’s school. She begged to go, since they do games and giveaways. Fine. So I took her off to Wendy’s, and let the Hubby get some much needed extra sleep.
When we walked in the door, I was AMAZED at the amount of people that were there, and so early. It was barely 5:30 when we got there. It was great to see the support for the school.
What really amazed me was a bunch of 5th or 6th graders walking around with baby carriers.
Did you gasp a little?
I did too at first, but it was their homework! They had “Sugar Babies” for a period of time, and they had to care for it like a real baby. Bags of sugar dressed up like babies. These kids were carting them EVERYWHERE! I was amazed. Some kids had even added heads to the bags of sugar! They all had clothes on, blankets and more. It was amazing. I wanted to ask the principal what grade and more details, but it was so busy.
I didn’t know that schools still did this sort of thing, but was glad that our school does. We did blown out eggs in Jr. High, but wow. I couldn’t imagine carting around a bag of sugar.
Do any of yours still do this assignment?
