Egg-quality For All

Using eggs as a visual, Kara Maguire gave her first-graders at Cornwell Avenue Elementary School a memorable lesson on Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of equality.

Maguire showed her class two eggs, one white and one brown, and asked them to discuss how the shells are different. The young students made predictions about what the eggs would look like inside before their teacher cracked them open to reveal that they were, in fact, the same. 

Following the demonstration, Maguire read “The Story of Martin Luther King Jr.” by Johnny Ray Moore to educate the class about Dr. King’s inspirational life and unceasing efforts to end segregation in America.
