Download N Go unit studies are written for grades K-4 but I have been successfully using them with my 2nd and 5th graders. Hoppin' Popcorn was a lot of fun.
With each Download N Go study you get 5 days of lessons. In Hoppin' Popcorn you will find:
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

One of the projects in this study is to sprout popcorn. I really didn't know that you could take popcorn from your cupboard and sprout it. We decided not to plant ours but it was fun to watch the sprouts grow.
