Popping popcorn was a fun way to review the way we use our senses!

We also learned that the Native Americans first popped corn.  Corn grows on a stalk and we eat the seeds.  Inside a kernel is a small drop of water. When the water is heated inside the kernel, the water turns to vapor and expands which causes the kernel to explode and turn inside out.  Watch the video below to see this happen in slow motion.
