It’s Friday, March 27, 2020, and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

Real maple syrup is a delight for the senses – and learning about how it is made is fun for the entire family!

At this website you can take a virtual tour of a homeschool family’s maple syrup farm. Through interesting text and photographs you can learn about the entire maple syrup process from tree to breakfast table.

But that’s not all! This homeschool family recognizes the learning value of the maple syrup process and has designed an entire Unit Study to accompany their virtual tour! It is available absolutely FREE at their website. Just click on “Unit Study” on the menu, then click on the tabs that open in the left-hand menu. There are 10 weeks of lesson plans that include: 

  • Indian Syrup Making
  • Pioneer Syrup Making
  • Modern Syrup Making
  • All About Maple Trees
  • Tapping Maple Trees
  • Gathering Maple Sap
  • Boiling Sap Into Syrup
  • Bottling Pure Maple Syrup
  • Selling Pure Maple Syrup
  • The Sugarbush Annual Maple Syrup Festival

But wait! There’s still more! The unit studies include craft ideas, and lots of links for such things as crafts, further research, and even recipes! (NOTE: Not all the links were working at the time of our review.)

After visiting this site, you might want to purchase a jug of Sugarbush Pure Maple Syrup! (It’s also a nice way to support the efforts of this homeschool family and thank them for the gift of these free learning materials.)
