Why Lesson Planet?
Learners use popcorn to complete activities in math, language arts, science, social studies, P.E., and art. In this multidisciplinary lesson, popcorn is used as a teaching tool for various subjects. Students read popcorn legends, study the origins of popcorn, measure oil, salt, and popcorn, discuss the volume and weight of the popcorn before and after it has popped, and create an art scene with popcorn. Learners review their activities at the end of the day.
