I love using special days as a way to jump start an “interest study.” The month of October is Popcorn Month, and would make a perfect reason to study popcorn in a variety of ways.
Create a history of popcorn timeline along with loads of fun!
Take time to research which states are the top “corn producing” states in America. It’s great to know where your popcorn comes from!
Exactly what is it that makes popcorn pop? Find out the science of popcorn.
Measure the popcorn prior to popping, after the corn has been popped, and calculate the difference in weight. What is missing?
Watch a video showing just how corn pops.
As a creative writing exercise write an essay on the chronological story of popcorn from the field to your mouth!
