Download N Go~~ Hoppin' Popcorn

**Thank you Amanda Bennett and Download N Go for giving me this unit to review.**

Who doesn't love popcorn??  I know we go through a lot of it here.  This study taught us things we didn't know before.  Love that!!

Here is what our week looked like:

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

Honestly....we had no idea we were living in a state that was considered a part of the corn belt.  We knew that New York state grows a lot of corn, but not a part of "the" belt!  The neat things you learn while doing Download N Go. 

I'm kind of a simple person.  We eat popcorn the same way each time we make it...with butter and salt.  Until this study.  We are now not "afraid" of putting flavor into our popcorn.  Nacho popcorn anyone?  Nachos are something I've missed since trying to adapt a more healthy lifestyle.  Who would of thought of adding the flavors to popcorn?? Download N Go that's who!  One flavor we did not try yet is the peanut butter...has anyone tried this? 

We had the pleasure of visiting a local farm last year that grows popcorn.  I couldn't find the pictures but if I'm able I'll post them.  It was a lot of fun.  Our children have decided to grow popcorn this year in their gardens.  Yea!!

The science of popcorn was SO interesting.  Do you know why popcorn pops?  Well if not you will have to go and get Hoppin' Popcorn to find out.  Trust me that is just ONE of many things you will learn with this.

Here's a peak inside the unit.
