Predicting Popcorn

Students view pictures of different shapes and use one popped kernel of popcorn to estimate how many pieces would be needed to fill different shapes. They then fill in shapes with three cups of popcorn, record their results, and discuss how close they were to their predictions.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
