Tapping Our Sugar Maple

Mr. Pancake came to Academy School showed us how to tap a maple tree. He is the father of our ELL teacher, Heidi Pancake.  We had such a fun time watching him drill the hole! He put a tap in and placed a bucket underneath. Although the sap did not come running right out of the tree, we will be looking forward to going back to and checking how much sap our tree is producing.  

Trying to find a good place to put our "tap"

Our star of the day holding the hammer to give to Mr. Pancake

We chanted "drill that hole!"

No sap yet, but we will keep an eye on the bucket
