Kindergarten Maple Celebration

 March has been a very busy month for Kindergarten. We learned all about maple sugaring firsthand from the Farm. We went to the maple sugaring house with Courtney, our Farm Educator, and were able to see the action up close. She brought us up to the forest to tap our very own tree. The children learned how to tap a maple sugar tree and learned about what tools were needed for that. We were then able to go inside the sugar house and see the sap boiling. It was great for the children to visually see this process. At the end of our unit we had a pancake breakfast to celebrate. The children presented what they had learned in front of their parents. They presented about the tree life cycle, different kinds of branching, how to tap a maple tree and how to make syrup. They did an amazing job and made their parents proud!
