Why Lesson Planet?
Students feel and look at unpopped kernels. They watch as the popcorn pops, students listen and smell the pop of the popcorn. Students sing the song "Popcorn Popping." They discuss how popcorn looks like blossoms on blooming apricot trees. Students are given a cupful of warm popcorn to taste and feel. They are shown pictures cut from magazines of people who are using their senses to explore objects.
