First Journey to Identify Ideal Trees

Beth Guzzetta’s Science 7 students learn about maple trees on their first journey with WoodWise Pat Sadler and Dan Prokupets.  Students learned how to identify the best trees to tap for maple sugar and how to measure the trees using forestry tools.  An ideal setting was the Allendale Columbia School nature trails with its abundance of trees with trails weaving through the natural setting on campus.  View the videos that seventh grade Brandon Medina took during this fun class.


About bguzzetta

I am a middle school math and science teacher at Allendale Columbia School. Technology and the outdoors are integral parts of my curriculum. I love outdoor activities, which I enjoy with my family. I have always felt that students should be exposed to global research, and am very excited to be bringing this to my students with the support of school. Therefore, I have embarked on a journey that includes a collaboration between myself, the Seneca Park Zoo, the Smithsonian Institute, and National Geographic's photographer David Liittschwager. Sports have always been part of my life, and I am the current Girls Vice President for the Rochester District Youth Soccer League.
