Second Grade Trip to Sharon Audubon

On Thursday, April 5th the Second Grade Classes from Elm Drive attended an educational outdoor field trip at the Sharon Audubon.

Mrs. Doyle, Mr. Hammell, and Mrs. Jordan all chaperoned the trip. The trip focused on the process and history of Springtime Maple Sugaring. Students participated in 3 stations while on the trip.

First, students were treated to a fireside Native American tale of Chief Woksis and his wife Moqwah detailing the historical facts surrounding the discovery and early methods of maple sugaring. This included the early Native American use of hot rocks in a wooden Mokuk to boil the "Sinzibuckwuda" as the Algonquian's referred to maple syrup in their tongue. Students also learned about the use of the Colonial Time's "Lazy Man's Balance" to prepare maple syrup over the campfire.
