We learned so much about sugaring and the science of maple syrup! We got to taste test the 4 varieties:  golden,  amber,  dark,  and  very dark.  We also got to taste some “buddy” syrup….which was not so good!!

Did you know that squirrels were the first maple sugarers??  They discovered this sweet maple nectar first!

Enjoy the pictures below as well as some other photos from  our classroom!

Building and Testing Walls!!

We tested sand, clay and soil to see which would make the best mortar. Then we built our walls!

   

Most of the groups used sand and clay!
