Making Hot Air Balloons

The second and third graders had a joint 2 part Library listening and activity. They first listened to Oh, The Places You’ll Go! at Library this week. Before leaving they told where they would go if they could travel anywhere they wanted. The answers were as varied as the students.

They returned for the activity–making a hot air balloon. Working in pairs (a 2nd grader and a 3rd grader) they blew up and tied their balloons. Not an easy task for many. Then, using straws and tape they connected the balloon to a plastic cup. The final challenge came next. Can you move your cup across the table without touching it. Success was measured in inches, but everyone gave it a try.
