Popcorn Science

Students identify and apply the scientific method through an experiment with popcorn. Then they identify what independent, dependent, and control variables are and create a list of different variables that affect popcorn popping. Students also identify what a hypothesis is by making an educated guess in picking what brand popcorn that they have the most/least leftover kernels.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
