October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month. Americans love popcorn! In fact, we consume about 15 billion quarts annually. Not only does popcorn taste great, but it’s also a whole-grain food that is low in fat and calories and provides fiber to the diet. This teaching kit features activities that encourage students to discover nutritional information and fun facts about popcorn, including its history and where and how it is grown, and challenges students with an online popcorn scavenger hunt. As a culminating activity, schools are encouraged to showcase their team spirit and love of popcorn by entering the Popcorn Pep Club Contest for the chance to win the $2,500 Grand Prize!
