We're All the Same on the Inside
Grade Level(s): Preschool, 1-2, 3-5
By: Renee, preschool teacher

This is a simple look at how we can look different on the outside, yet be the same on the inside. We use this activity around Martin Luther King day after a discussion about prejudice.

Materials:

  • one or more brown eggs
  • one or more white eggs
  • a bowl

Plan:

Following a discussion with the children about how people are alike (we all have two eyes, we all have hair) and how we differ (blue eyes vs. brown eyes-long hair vs. short) show them a brown egg and a white egg.

Discuss the similarities and differences in the eggs. (They are oval, they are different colors.)

Break each egg into the bowl and dispose of shell. (Hint: this is best done above their eye level because if they see which yolk came from which egg, they will be able to make a distinction). Can they tell which is which?

No--because just like people,even though we may LOOK different on the outside, we're all the same on the inside!

I love this web site! I am rather inexperienced at surfing the web, but when I found this site I was thrilled and have returned many times! Keep up the good work!
