Today, in honor of National Popcorn Month, we learned about the Scientific Method by counting out 100 popcorn kernels into a paper bag and guessing how many would pop after two minutes in the microwave.   The kids learned all six steps of the Scientific Method.  Afterwards we popped a small batch of plain popcorn to taste.


We wrote facts about some of our favorite animals.  This followed a fact and opinion discussion.


We formed two teams and played Build A Spider to practice subtraction facts.
