This week we are working on the five senses so for science we used all five senses to explore popcorn. Yum! We started by reviewing the five senses and the body parts they are associated with. Then I revealed the hot air popcorn maker. None of my students had ever seen one before! We felt the popcorn kernels and listened as the kernels tapped into the machine. They were AMAZED when popcorn started flowing out of the machine. It was sooo cute!!
We made a chart and worked on adding descriptive words to each section as we smelled, touched, tasted and looked at the popcon.
