Home School Materials
In thanks to all the homeschooling families that have supported Maple Creek Farm over the years, we now offer several packets of maple themed educational materials. These were created by Maple Creek family member and farmhand Jonah Swann. When not helping out on the farm, Jonah tutors mathematics and teaches math classes for homeschoolers in the Asheville area. If you have questions regarding these materials or would like more information regarding his tutoring services, please contact Jonah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Map Excercises- appropriate for all ages, this activity adresses the challenge of laying out tubing to efficiently collect the sap for cooking.
Algebra Excercises- These word problems offer practice with Algebra I and II concepts while introducing facts about "sugaring" and a few new math concepts.
Hydrometer - This file contains instructions for building your own simple hydrometer, a tool for measuring the density of a liquid. While appropriate for all ages, this activity involves boiling water and using a hot glue gun, so close adult supervision is recommended.
Early Elementary Activities- This packet of maple themed excercises for younger students is in preparation and will be made available as soon as possible. Check back in soon, or contact Jonah to find out more.
We plan to continue creating content for this page over the next few months, so check back here soon. If you have any questions or suggestions for other content, please feel free to contact Jonah.
