What do you get when you try four different kind’s of popcorn to see which one pops the most?
Shriek wanted to participate in the science fair this year. The Umpire helped her. They worked really hard and ended up with a great science project that they had a lot of fun with. I think they also had some really fun daddy daughter time.
What they did was choose four different kinds of pop corn
- Jiffy Pop
- Microwave Bag
- kernals on the stove
- Microwave Bucket
They popped them all for the same amount time and counted the kernals that did not pop and the popped corn to see which one was the winner. Shriek told me she had a lot of fun putting the kernals in little groups of ten to count them. I say any time you can make math fun go for it!
I am not going to tell you the results in case someone else wants to use this idea for their child’s project. because it really was a fun simple science project idea.
Shriek loved learning how popcorn pops and had a lot of fun putting her poster together. I am really glad she participated, even if my house still smelled of burnt popcorn for several days after the finished the project
* I am also over at Mommy Moment today talking about reward charts. I like them but they never last too long at my house. I would love some tips!
