Boiling Day Fun by Nate P.

Last Thursday the school finished their maple syrup making project. While the sap was boiled we participated in numerous fun activities. My favorites of these were: games, pancake making, spile making, and maple syrup taste testing. During the day the sap was boiled into syrup, and some syrup was made into maple sugar. Maple sugar is sap without any liquids. We also learned about the Native American traditions and lore about maple syrup. I think that this was one of may favorite school days, and I think that my classmates enjoyed it also.

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.
