New Albany Career & Tech students care for ‘Sugar Babies’

NEMiss.News Sugar Babies project
December 2nd, 2021     City schools


Elke Lipsey’s Child Development class and April Voyles’ Health Sciences class at the New Albany School of Career and Technical Education participated in a collaborative project on Friday, November 19, 2021.

Students in the Child Development class are studying the parenting of infants and are taking care of their “sugar babies.” During the project, they participated in a well-baby checkup for their “sugar baby.” Students had to fill out medical history forms for their “baby” and sit in the waiting room waiting on their appointment.

Health Science students have been studying growth and development. These students got hands-on experience by performing check-ups for the “sugar babies.” Students weighed and measured the baby’s length and head circumference. They plotted that information on growth charts. Students also discussed developmental milestones and immunizations with parents.
