Some of the children helped to turn an area into our classroom into a sugar house and a maple syrup/ maple candy factory. It's fun to see the dramatic play. Farmers are collecting sap from the trees that they made and boiling it in the evap0rator. (The easel area has been turned into a maple grove; the water table is now an evaporator - with a fire in the fire box; the back table area is the factory.) There is a lot of excitement as the sap is running in the classroom. Let's hope that it warms up enough to empty our real sap buckets soon!
Doug stopped in to "buy" some maple candy from our factory.
