Laughy Taffy!

Hosted by: Vanier Museopark

Making maple syrup requires a good understanding of the sugar bush operation, accurate measurement of maple product refinement, and the execution of several manual tasks.

Show students the cycle of maple water from tree to table while making them aware of the realities and challenges associated with preserving the ecosystem of Richelieu Park’s heritage forest, where the main attraction is a unique urban sugar bush!

Stories and legends about the origin of maple syrup, the handling of artifacts, observations in nature, and an inference-based activity will help students discover that the charms and delights of maple syrup are not limited to tasting!

Education Value and Curriculum Connections:

  • Grade 4 – Science and Technology “Life Systems”: explore the interdependence of plants, animals and their habitats and identify factors that affect habitats and communities.
  • Grade 4 – Math “Measurement”: use conventional units of length in a variety of contexts. “Numeration and number sense”: compare and order fractions with a common denominator using concrete or visual material.
  • Grade 5 – Mathematics “Measurement”: solve problems involving different units of length and perimeter in simple contexts. “Numeration and number sense”: compare and order proper and improper fractions and decimals to hundredths.
  • Grade 6 – Science and Technology “Life Systems”: evaluate the ways in which biodiversity contributes to the stability of natural communities and how human activity affects biodiversity.
  • Grade 6 – Mathematics “Measurement”: solve problems involving different units of length and perimeter in complex situations. “Numeration and number Sense”: convert a decimal number or fraction whose denominator is a factor of 100 into a percentage, and vice versa.
