"I see brown skin." "I see a suit."
"I see a man." "I see lots of people." "I see him speaking."
"I think he must be important" "I think people need to listen to him."
"I think he's serious."
To help us understand our physical differences verses our inner qualities, we examined two eggs. The kids found many similarities between the outside of the eggs- they were eggs, round, cold, and smooth. I asked what was different about the eggs and some kids shared they were slightly different sizes or one had a few bumpy spots, but not even one child said color! After prompting, they decided one egg was brown and one was white. I told you, they don't see color differences!
How would we see the inside of our eggs? Crack them open, of course! Call me crazy, but I thought it was super important for each child to experience this activity so on the count of "3", 20 kindergartners each cracked open an egg!!!
"There's no chick." :(
