Chemistry, Botany, Math, Science, History, evolving technologies…… It all comes into play when learning about the unique process of maple sugaring.
The season is short: Last week of February -1st week of April and it is a phenomenom unique to NE North America.
Students will learn tree ID, photosynthesis, how to use a hand drill, measure diameter and circumference of trees, about evaporation, fire and boiling temperatures, grades of syrup. We even have a puppet show for young students including Rooty, Leah the Leaf and Sugar (the maple tree).
Don’t miss it! Call 603-465-7787 to book a field trip for your students. A true sign of spring!
