MLK Day Egg Experiment

Posted on January 3, 2013 | By kayla

Have you tried the egg experiment for MLK Day? We saw this lesson idea floating around Pinterest and thought it would make an egg-cellent addition to your holiday lesson plans!

Egg Experiment

Using their five senses students are invited to examine two eggs; one brown and one white. As a class, discuss your student's observations, compiling a list of important points {see the example anchor charts below}. Your students may be surprised to note that, while the eggs look different on the outside, they look the same on the inside. This same lesson translates into other aspects of life - including people!

Here are some lesson resources you might consider using...
