Welcome to our At Home Learning Page! We will do our best to offer weekly ideas for at home learning about agriculture! These activities will all be free to access and share. Our weekly activities do not build on each other, but are individual and can be done in any order.
This week we are looking at popcorn!
Popcorn poetry. POP is an onomatopoeia, a word that mimics a sound. Have your learner try writing a poem about popcorn using the onomatopoeia! Use other descriptive words in your poem. You can read a fun popcorn poem here for inspiration.

Let's look at some geography. Most U.S. popcorn is grown in the Midwest, primarily in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio. Print out a US map and find/color in these states or glue a popped pocorn kernal on each state!
