We spent the first two weeks of school during science time working on making our balloons using tissue paper and glue sticks.
We used the directions that are posted here.
The big day finally arrived! It was a Friday, so the kids got to wear their regular clothes instead of their usual uniforms. Luke and his buddy still ended up wearing matching clothes! They made me take a twins picture! Not sure why the Lunchables made a photobombing appearance - lol!
Then we loaded up on the bus. This was actually my first field trip on a bus as a teacher! We haven't had the funding for field trips, so I was excited to get this one paid for through a grant!
When we got to the hot air balloon races, volunteers were on hand to fill up our hot air balloons and launch them. Some were more successful than others and we got the opportunity to rethink our designs.
We had a blast chasing the balloons as they came down!
So much fun - but exhausting too!
Luke was definitely tuckered out!
