Giveaway! Hoppin' Popcorn Download N Go

Popcorn.  How many things are there to learn about popcorn?  Well, if you use Amanda Bennett's Download N Go there is a lot to learn!  We got to do some state studies, history, science, and more.  We learned how the popcorn pops, visited a virtual popcorn museum, and we (of course) ate a lot of popcorn!

Your kids will have so much fun with Hoppin' Popcorn, that they fay forget this is 'school'!  But you won't forget, because there is a lot of learning packed into this unassuming subject.

Day 1: Popcorn—What Is It?
Day 2: The Story of Popcorn
Day 3: The Flavors of Popcorn
Day 4: The Science of Popcorn
Day 5: Fun With Popcorn

We always have a lot of fun with that last day.  Games, party ideas, printables, fun movies, and more.  Have you seen the pages from the Download N Go studies?  wow, they are so bright and colorful, the kids love them!  The drawing pages are always a favorite, because they combine colorful background or fun borders with drawing ideas.  You can download samples of the pages in Hoppin' Popcorn, which is excellent because I always like to see something before I buy it!

One of the fun features in Hoppin' Popcorn are the the beautiful pictures with poems and Bible verses on them.  These are a fun way to get older kids involved in the study, through copywork and memorization.  My kids aren't old enough to do long copywork yet, but there are still ways to use these to your advantage.  You can even pick one of these pages and have them copy a portion each day.  

We really loved Hoppin' Popcorn, so I couldn't resist the chance to show off a little of my kids' fun schoolwork.  :)

We did a fun experiment 

to demonstrate how steam blows up a popcorn kernal. We ran out of water in our pan before the balloon was all blown up, but we got it large anyway!

  7. We definitely eat a lot of popcorn here. We buy local, because we like to know where it comes from. It's so nice to know that we live near farms that produce some of the food we like to eat! We're pretty partial to homemade popcorn, as opposed to the bagged microwave variety. I like to be able to season it myself! Thanks for this giveaway (and all of them that you do). Many blessings, Janeen

    Oh and I'm a fellow TOS Crew member, but haven't been to your blog before. I think it's neat for us 'newer to homeschooling moms' to see a homeschooled couple homeschooling their children. I am a new follower now!
