A Mad Scientist In 3K

A Mad Scientist recently visited our 3K classrooms! Science Preschool Programs are engaging hands-on learning experiences for preschool children aged 3-5. Each workshop is an interactive, age-appropriate exploration or a specific science topic. Every themed program is designed to captivate in curious nature of young children. Preschoolers enjoy engaging demonstrations, perform simple and will discover how science can help us better understand the world around us! Mad Mixtures in 3K explored simple chemistry fun. The children were able to make their own modeling clay to take home! For more information about this program, go to

Butterflies In 3K2!


Scholars in class 3K2, with Ms. Shlansky and Ms. Jimenez, have completed a science unit where they learned about the lifecycle of a butterfly!  They learned that a butterfly starts out as an egg and then hatches into a caterpillar. The caterpillar eats and eats and eats some more and then transforms into a chrysalis. While the caterpillar is inside the chrysalis it slowly changes into a butterfly. When the butterfly emerges, the young scientists learned that butterflies have to let its wings dry before it can fly and be free!

Students were able to watch the growth of butterflies with a Insect Lore Butterfly Garden Kit, gifted by Ms. Nuez (PS4's Librarian)! The kit is made from mesh and includes a feeding dropper! The kit allowed for Ms. Shlansky to receive five baby caterpillars and food! After three weeks, students in 3K2 watched caterpillars transform from chrysalises into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies!

Congratulations to 3K2 on their successful butterfly unit!
