  1. Julie Truesdell

    The RealCare Baby 3 has given my students the opportunity to get a quick but realistic snapshot of what life as a teen parent would be like. There are 15 different programs that can be set, each modeled after a real baby and the journal that its parents kept about its care. There are several ways to customize care to be sensitive to individual student needs while still creating a meaningful learning opportunity. Programming is a snap, and grades are quick and easy to access. I especially like the printed grade report that each student receives after care – the details on it are extraordinary. The technical support staff is incredibly helpful, too. My students look forward to this project each year, and it never disappoints! So many wonderful lessons have been learned in my classroom thanks to the RealCare Baby 3 program!
