This unit utilizes a popcorn theme. It was developed to provide an opportunity for students to have enjoyable science experiences focused on Energy Forms and Interactions. This unit will help students recognize that energy and energy interactions cause many of the changes that happen around them. Students will participate in teacher directed experiences where several energy forms and interactions occur including the popping and sprouting of popcorn kernels. The science skills emphasized in the Energy Forms and Interactions kit are observing, collecting data, organizing data, interpreting data, and discussing.

This collection is available as downloadable PDFs, but portions of the content are found in wiki format (see WIKI Learning Experiences and Resources) which can be edited or built up with other materials on the same topic by members of the Curriki community.
