Eating sugar on snow.
Last weekend, ELL Newcomer students, families and teachers visited a maple sugarhouse in Shelburne.
The group learned how maple syrup is made and got a taste of some yummy sugar-on-snow! Staff at Palmer's Sugarhouse told us how they tap trees and collect the sap which is then boiled to make syrup. We learned that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup!
It was a great experience for students who are new to Vermont and the U.S., and a fun learning activity on a beautiful spring day.
