Fun with Candy Corn

There are so many different kinds of candy corn out there that we just had to create something to do with all of it. Enter this tasty candy corn unit.
Speaking from experience, we find it best to use this as a center. Purchase 3-5 different kinds of candy corn (there are sorting pages and graphs for 3, 4, and 5 included so you can use the one that matches how many kinds you found). These can be found at grocery stores as well as Target and Wal-Mart. Mix them in a large bowl and then distribute evenly (don’t count, just get a visual) into snack size plastic zip bags. At the start of the center, give each student a copy of the packet and a bag of candy corn. To encourage good quality work, we tell our students that the packet has to be checked by the teacher (for accuracy, neatness and overall effort) before any candy corn can be eaten. Not to worry, hardly anyone ever sneaks a candy prematurely because tattle-tails are always lurking and ready to blab. : )
