Baggy Benita Wants to Be a Real Girl
Science Play Excerpt:

Child (making fun of Benita):  She thinks she’s a real girl.  She thinks she’s a real girl.

New Friend:  It’s not nice to tease. 

Baggy Benita:  I am a real girl!

Child:  Do you have any cells?

Baggy Benita: I’m too young for a cell.   But, my girl’s mommy uses her cell to order pizza and set up play dates.

Child:  Not, a cell phone – a biology cell.  All living things are made up of cells. 

Baggy Benita:  What is a cell?

New Friend:  Biology is the study of living things.  Every living thing is made up of cells.  For example, the petal of a flower is made of many tiny cells. Cells are the building blocks of plants and animals. 

Baggy Benita:  Well, I bring as much joy to the children that play with me as a flower.  I am more alive than many of you humans.

Child:  But, you are not a living thing. Plants and animals like us (points to self and New Friend) are living things made up of cells.  So, you are not a real girl.

Baggy Benita:  I am too living. 

Child:  Living things grow, breathe air, and can make more like them.  Can you do any of these?

Baggy Benita:  You must be an animal.  You are so unfeeling.  But, this nice new friend surely isn’t an animal.

New Friend:  Actually, Benita.  I am an animal.  There are many classes of animals, and humans are one kind of animal.
