The Facts and Fondness of Maple Syrup Harvesting
Maple syrup is a yummy staple in many Canadian homes. One of the promises of early spring is the chance to venture a walk through a sugar maple bush. The beautiful scenery and the sight of sap flowing from trees is a traditional family field trip. Some farms still have the pots attached to the side of the trees, and when you look in, you get to see the watery sap that starts the delicious journey into maple syrup. Tubes that hook from tree to tree are another way to collect the sweet sap, which is an easier and convenient process for big producers. Whichever way they do it, the outcome is sure to tempt many taste buds.

As homeschoolers, we have the benefit of taking our children by the hand and unlocking those stories just waiting to be told. But how do you do it? Listen how three homeschool moms* used everyday happenings to teach their children history.
