Barbie Turns 50!

We here at teacher's Brunch HQ in water-logged Auburn Hills, MI are taking a moment to say "Happy Birthday" to Barbie.

In the last 50 years, Barbie has been a significant part of girls' lives, for better, and for worse.

An interesting project might be looking into Barbie's history, and seeing how she's changed in the last 50 years. Or maybe students could look into the positive and negative social effects she's had.

Of course, you could do that with any toy. . . .

Barbie continues to be a genius toy, especially since girls like to imagine themselves grown up and Barbie helps them do that
