Maple Syruping in Wisconsin
Aligned with 4th grade curricula objectives, but adaptable for grades K-5.
This program is only offered for three weeks in March in 2019 (March 11th-29th). Students will learn basic tree identification, try tools used to “tap a tree,” taste sap, learn the science of sap flow and watch it cook down to syrup during the boiling process. We will teach the history of maple syrup making from the Native Americans to the present—and taste the final product! Adapts easily to a longer program.
