Little House: Sugar Snow

have the pleasure of teaching the 4 and 5 year olds in our homeschool co-op for this semester. Once a week, I'm teaching them history in a fun way. We're going back in time and doing things they way they used to do them.  I'm using the "My First Little House" book series, which takes stories out of the chapter books and makes it into picture books.

Previous weeks:
Winter Days in the Big Woods
Farmer Boy's Birthday
Winter on the Farm

Latest:  Sugar Snow

While I didn't take as many pics as I had planned, we did measure how many cups of sap would go for one cup of syrup. (40:1!).  We looked at modern supplies to tap. We did a scissors/glue/color activity (click for your free Printable ). We were going to pour maple syrup over snow, but no snow. Another mom made Laura Ingalls Wilder's recipe for maple cakes (so good!).  And of course, we end our time with a meal of oatmeal made by the children. Another great day indeed.
