Maple Sugary Sweetness and Becoming a MapleTapper!
|Isaiah learning about maple syrup!
And the kids were quite enthralled with the kit as well, as I'm sure is evident in the pictures! They can not wait to find some trees to tap, and it's going to be tough for them to wait for spring! It's neat to find a product to help us learn about something in which Isaiah's expressed interest - making maple syrup.
The book is extremely helpful for anyone with no background in making maple syrup, which is probably most people! It contains a narrative section with an entire story about the process to make maple syrup with facts and figures and great illustrations. It was probably a bit much text for my five and three year old students, but I was able to hold their attention by breezing through some more in-depth sections. The book also contains a section of art, science, and cooking activities for the kids. And to help the adults (you know you'll need it!), there is an entire "how to" section with the nitty gritty details of maple tapping for adults. If you need more information, articles or how-to videos, you can check out the Maple Tapper website!
Note: I received a Maple Tapper Kit for free in exchange for my review. It does in no way effect just how excited I am about this product! :)
