During the week of Feb. 28, flour sack babies were distributed to grade 8 students to give them a glimpse of the experience of parenthood. The students earned points for science and physical education for participating in the project, and were expected to look after their would-be children with the utmost care. Any neglect or abuse resulted in lost points. Daycare centers were set up so that students who had after-school activities could leave their flour sacks to be supervised. Students made the activity fun by accessorizing their flour sacks with sunglasses, hats, blankets and other items.
