Different but the Same

Sometimes in art class we will do things a little bit different. The kindergarten is drawing pictures of peace, we learn about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr , they love to hear the stories of how "he was really nice to people" and "how he tried to help people". Part of the lesson includes talking about differences.  To illustrate the same but different we look at a brown egg and a white egg and consider their sameness and differences.  We discuss how they are like people and we then guess if the eggs will be the same on the inside even thought the are different on the outside.  I love this lesson and it has such a strong visual element to it that the students always remember it.
