Topic: Investigating Popcorn!

Today we are going to be food scientists! To be a great scientist, we need to ask clever questions about the world around us and then use our senses to make conclusions about what we have seen, heard, smelt, tasted or felt. Today we have two questions: - Why does popcorn pop? - How long does it take for a kernel to become popcorn? 🍿 Grab a piece of paper, a pencil and be ready to pause the video to write down the things you see and hear in the video, which will help you find the answer our two important questions. If you have microwaveable popcorn at home, you can pause the video when I ask you to, and get mummy and daddy to help you have a go at ‘observing’ it in real life yourself. DO NOT do it by yourself! 1. Start watching the of me explaining the investigation and some important facts about popcorn. 2. Pause the video and write down your observations (what you see and hear), when I ask you to. Join in with the experiment at home at this point too, if you can/want to - no worries if you can’t! 3. At the end, think carefully about what you have seen and heard with the popcorn. Try to make a conclusion - this means use what you know to try to answer the two questions (why popcorn pops and how long it takes). 4. Click 5. Use the , , or tools to share your observations and conclusions. 6. Click to save. 6. Tomorrow morning, look in the Seesaw announcements to watch me share the answers to the questions, so you can see if you were right!
