Bronxville's Chapel School Preschoolers Become Teachers

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Preschool students at The Chapel School recently became teachers for the older students.

Second-grade teacher Mrs. Hillier invited the young students into her class to explain an experiment they did.

“I thought it would be great for the preschoolers to "teach" my second graders about liquids and solids and what they know about it from their experiment, since this is what we are currently working on.”

The second-graders were learning about the three states of matter and the ways matter can be changed.

During Lutheran Schools Week, as part of the love together theme, Mrs. Butler’s PreK class made heart crayons. This was incorporated into a science lesson, whereby the children recycled old classroom crayons.

They first peeled the wrappers off the crayons, then broke them into small pieces. The pieces were then placed into heart shape cupcake molds, and placed it into the microwave to melt the crayons. The children learned that the heat changed the solid crayons into a liquid. They then put the mold into the freezer, turning the liquid back into a solid. The children also learned that that the liquid took the shape of the container, making heart shaped crayons. As a follow up, the children had fun explaining what they learned and the step by step process to the second grade who in turn explained more of what they had learned on the same topic.

Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School are at 172 White Plains Road. in Bronxville, across the street from Concordia College. For more information about Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School and its programs, call 914-337-3202 or visit their website.
