Materials Needed for Popcorn Number Match-Up:
Getting Popcorn Number Match-Up Ready:
Print the match-ups (Color or Black & White), laminate and cut using a paper trimmer. Gather all of the pieces and place in a plastic container. I love using plastic pencil cases to store centers like these. It keeps everything in one place and does not take up a ton of space.
This obviously doesn’t take a ton of time to put together and makes a wonderful activity to help your kids have fun and learn at the same time.
Doing Popcorn Number Match-Up
Students will start the activity by choosing a popcorn bucket with a number on it. This student chose the popcorn bucket with the number eight.
Students will then sort through all of the scoops with pictures looking for the ones that start with the number eight.
Each popcorn bucket has six popcorn kernels with a visual. Once the popcorn bucket has has six popcorn kernels representing the corresponding number, they can move on to a new number and start again.
Another way this could be completed, is to have all of the popcorn buckets laid out on a table or even the floor. Students will then sort through all of the popcorn kernels and place each one at the correct cone.
If you have younger (or struggling) students that would be overwhelmed by the amount of puzzle pieces in this activity, scale it back. Provide them with only a few of the numbers. Once they master those, you can slowly add in more.
