This week I am introducing Popcorn another active learning strategy from Joyful Learning. This activity has endless possibilities and can be modified numerous ways to fit your classroom, learners, and preferences.
This activity, as described in Joyful Learning, "...is controlled chaos at its best." Students fly around the classroom during transition times in random directions just as popcorn does. "This activity is useful for the times when you want students to share information, teach and learn from each other, and get ideas or opinions from more than one person in a very short amount of time."
Please enjoy this activity and come back to let me know how it went in your classroom and how you modified it for your learners.
