Maple Syrup Sunday! And Maple Syrup Sundaes

Today is Maple Syrup Sunday here in Maine. It's a day when many maple syrup producers open their operations to visitors. All of them offer some type of educational program about the production of maple syrup. Many of them will have samples of their products. My favorite one has maple syrup ice cream sundaes! 

A couple of weeks ago I shared some resources for learning about how maple syrup is produced and why it happens at this time of year. Since then SciShow Kids released a new video about how maple syrup is produced. It's a great explanation for students in Kindergarten through third grade. You can watch the video here on the SciShow Kids YouTube channel or as embedded below. If you click through to the YouTube version you can then find a list of all of the NGSS Standards the video covers.
