4th Class Hot Air Balloons

We learned about transport in Geography. We learned about hot air balloons as a mode of transport. The heat from the open flame in the burner system makes the balloon rise. Hot air rises because it is less dense.

We made our own hot air balloons in art class. We covered balloons in papier maché from layers of torn pieces of paper and glue. When they were dry, we cut them in half. We then painted them. We taped each half to a piece of blue card. We decorated it with ribbons and we glued on cotton balls for clouds. We collected yogurt cartons to make the baskets. We covered the baskets in tissue paper. We then attached the baskets with ribbons and tape.
