Friendship Week is over, but we continue to learn about friends.

7 days ago Kindergarteners at Jane Addams learned that a brown egg and white egg look different on the outside, but are the same on the inside.  We observed this science experiment to learn how to do data collection AND to learn that we can look different, but all friends feel the same inside.   Check out this video to watch our students.
