Belmont's 3rd graders went to Blandford Nature Center where they learned how sap is collected for maple syrup. They also learned that the Native Americans were the first to do this and taught the pioneers how to do this as well. They were able to go through the whole process of how maple syrup is made and then they even had a taste!
