Notes to the teacher: This lesson provides a short history of popcorn at the movies. It can be expanded to bring in other topics connected to the theme, such as snack foods, health, and potentially entertainment. Popcorn is a universal snack food that students should have experience with, and most likely have indulged in. The speaking task allows for the use of imagination and can be expanded to actual demonstrations of the games they create to finish the lesson in a fun and creative way.
