Not the color of our skin... and Inferencing
First Grade Wow: Not the color of our skin... and Inference: All the apples looked different! I then proceded to cut the apples in half cross-ways to show the kids that each apple, no matter the shape, size or color, has a star on the inside! They were cheering as I made my way through each apple! We then cheered that each of us is a star!! Valuable lesson for all!!

First Grade Fresh
Teaching diversity. From blogger pinned: To celebrate MLK day we did this fun activity using a brown egg & a white egg. We 1st described what the eggs looked like on the outside & then had a discussion on what we think would be on the inside. A lot of the kids thought the brown egg would be brown on the inside. I cracked the eggs & showed the students. *Gasp* They were the same on the inside!" Also includes "Are we really different?" paper for kids to fill out with activity.
