Popcorn maths

This is a fun activity to make from scratch (just don't burn the popcorn like I usually do) and has the added bonus of being edible too, making the clean up much quicker and easier.

Alternatively you can buy normal popcorn and save making a mess in the kitchen!


It's a simple maths Using and Applying session and is pretty open to whatever you want to do with it.  A simple empty and filling activity actually has huge value in P level maths, it can involve large and small containers therefore exploring size and quantity, you could add large spoons and other implements in to make the popcorn more challenging to pick up, you could hide things in the popcorn to encourage curiosity, persistence and fine motor skills, and you could have bowls either side of the table or tray to encourage reaching and cross body movements.
