For a science activity we made a hot air balloon. We learned about heat and how heat helps hot air balloons stay in the air. We took our balloon to East Meadows where we competed against other classes throughout the district to see which balloon design would stay in the air the longest. We did not win, but we did learn a lot about why hot air balloons have the design they have and why hot air can keep a balloon in the air for so long.
