The first is an experiment I named "A tale of two eggs" You use two eggs: one brown and one white. You have your students discuss how they are different on the outside and then guess what they will look like on the inside. Then you crack them both open and let the students observe and discuss. They should come to the conclusion they even though the eggs look very different on the outside, they are exactly the same on the inside. You can then use this as an analogy and talk about how people are just like eggs. Even though we are all different on the outside, we are all the same on the inside. Here's a free file that includes a description of the experiment, a picture, chart labels and a worksheet for students to complete (click on the pic to grab it!):
The second is this adorable project I found on pinterest.
