CES preschool students learn about equality

Campbellsville Elementary School preschool students recently learned that they should love and care for everyone – no matter the color of their skin.

 

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 16, students have been discussing equality.

 

Students learned that while people might have different skin colors, we are all the same on the inside.

 

Preschoolers were asked to think about what they will do when they grow older to change the world.

 

Students in Sherry Cowherd’s class placed their hands very close together in a circle to see if any two students have the same skin color. None of them do, they discovered, and that doesn’t determine whether they will become good people.

 

Cowherd’s students participated in an activity in which some were excluded from recess based on characteristics about themselves, such as eye color, gender and skin color. Students agreed they believe that is wrong, and that no one should experience discrimination.

 

Cowherd’s students, along with students in Denise Spencer’s class, performed an experiment to conclude their lessons about King and his legacy.

 

Students were shown tan, brown and white eggs and asked if they believe the insides of the eggs are the same or different.

 

After they thought about it, Cowherd cracked the eggs and showed the preschoolers that all the eggs are the same, even though they are different on the outside.
