Show students that EVERYTHING has a HISTORY, even Marshmallows. This would be a fun Friday activity, end of year activity or an activity around Easter time when especially Marshmallow Peeps are in the stores.
This interactive notebook activity has a short reading section on the history of Marshmallows, lots of Did You Know? fun facts, a comprehension activity as well as a reading(should you wish to download the article) on an interesting science activity using Marshmallow Peeps. There are also a number of extension activities.
