Maple Sugar Madness – For School Groups

Maple Sugar Madness!
At Prescott Farm
*For students in grades K-12
Monday—Friday for the entire month of March!

Join us to experience an old-fashioned New England tradition — making maple syrup!

From tapping a tree to tasting delicious maple syrup, students will learn from hands-on participation in the complete sugaring process. Students will build tree ID skills and learn the parts of a tree and their functions, use measuring tools to find an appropriate tree to tap, see and use historical and modern tree tapping tools, learn the history of maple sugaring including Native American legends, and discover the math and chemical/physical science in the boiling process.

The program involves bit of a walk to our Sugar House—please note that you will be hiking back up hill after the program. Please wear boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Snowshoes will be provided as needed.

 

Time: 2 hours

Includes walking time

 

Fee: $7 per student

One chaperone is required per 10 students and is not charged. No charge for one-to-one aides. Additional adults are $7/each as well.

 

Min./Max Group Size: 10/40

We do not have enough space in the Sugar House or enough educators on staff to safely and effectively provide the program to groups of more than 40 at a time.  Groups of more than 40 will be required to come in two groups – for example, a morning group and an afternoon group, or subsequent days.
