Popcorn is one of our family’s favorite snacks, because it’s healthy, easy to make, and absolutely delicious. But have you ever wondered, “How is popcorn different from regular corn? What makes popcorn pop?” We’ll explore these questions in this month’s homeschool lesson. There’s lots of great science inside a kernel of popcorn!
The lesson and activities below are most appropriate for preschool through 2nd grade, but there’s lots of great information for all ages.
