George learns that maple syrup comes from trees, so he and Allie team up to replenish the Man's syrup supply. After tapping lots of trees, tasting bitter sap, and turning sap into syrup at the Renkins' sugar shack, George is finally able to bring home syrup for the Man…just in time for dinner!Educational Objective: To be introduced to the process of maple syrup production. To reinforce the usefulness of systematic trial and error in inquiry, and the characteristic of persistence as a positive quality in doing inquiry.
