The students were excited to see the popcorn pop from the hot air popper. We talked about how the hot air popper works and tried some kernels from our corn stalks. We compared the microwave and the air popper. David and his family sent in a cob of corn with the kernels still on it. We put the entire cob in the microwave in a bag. Wow, they all popped right off the cob! Predictions were made and we shared some delicious popcorn.
