Why popcorn? Well, there are so many fun ways to describe the five senses of popcorn. Let’s start with when you make it… How does it sound? POP! POP! POP! What about how it sounds when you’re eating it? CRUNCH! CRUNCH! How does it smell? You might say buttery or sweet. How does it taste? Maybe salty or sweet or without butter you might describe it as plain. Since popcorn is edible, preschoolers not only get a fun lesson all about the five senses but they get to enjoy a yummy snack too!
