Mrs. Dykes AP Psychology students are getting a life lesson in attachment theory with the much anticipated and egg-citing Egg Baby chapter. Students must care for their egg babies just as a parent would, 24 hours a day, for an entire week. They are graded on their egg carrier, a photo journal they must keep, their egg's attendance in school, and a final "egg baby report" on the experience. The only difference with this "egg-speriment" in parenting is that these eggs come with a manual!
