Students in Early Child Education have been handed an assignment in which they are tasked with the burden of caring for an egg, carrying it around with them everywhere. They have to care for this egg like a parent would care for their child. These eggs have also been given official names, which cannot be changed.

The “parents” of these eggs have to be assiduously careful with their eggs as they carry them around school for eight hours. While at school, they have to deal with the “eggscapades” and antics of their peers who insist that they should be allowed to hold the egg for just a second or a little while. Immediately upon arriving home, the eggs are punctually rested in the refrigerator so that they can be preserved.

Students have to face a daunting task that all parents must face which is keeping their baby safe because if these eggs are broken the students have to provide photographic evidence of their “uneggceptable” mishap. They even have to write up an obituary for their egg if it is cracked beyond repair. There are some people who have had to creatively stop the “bleeding” of their eggs because they dropped them.

The students can not just replace their broken egg with a new egg because each egg was signed by Mrs. Bovè, so she would know if the egg was broken and then replaced by a different egg.

“The project was not that hard. There were some people who would try to mess with my egg, Enzo, but I did not let them. They would make jokes like, ‘Oh, I bet I could pitch with that egg’” said Emma Kleinhans, sophomore.

The main purpose of this project, just like any other project, is to educate. This project is supposed to help with teaching students just how challenging it is to keep up with a baby.

Many of the students who participated in this project have since returned their eggs safe and sound to Mrs. Bovè. This project has not just given these students a good project grade, but it has also given them an “eggcellent” learning opportunity.

    Love this idea! I think it teaches great responsibility. I love how “punny” it is 🙂
