Game (20 points)
Some people said that before having a baby, you should learn how to take care of an animal or plant first. For this time only we will do the things the other way around! You will first learn how to take care of a baby before having a pet! That is because pets are like eternal babies as they will always need you to take care of them, no matter how old they are!
What I want you to do for this part of the assignment is to play the following game: http://www.agame.com/game/kindergarten and tell me, in no less than 150 words, what was your experience playing this game. Do you feel ready to take care of a pet?

From the unconventional pets listed in the lesson, choose the one you like the most, and then write a story in which you narrate how you are taking care of your new pet! What does it eat?, How do you identify it?, How’s its housing?, How do you demonstrate your love to it?, Any special cares? Let your imagination fly!!
