Hot Air Balloons

Even though it’s not our summer school lesson today, we’ll be getting out the old lapbook anyway. I remember hot air balloons being a great study. I checked the following resource links and all seem to be working.

Still Learning Something New

balloon1June 5 is the anniversary of the first hot air balloon flight (1783).  Last year as part of summer school calendar studies Z,  J, and I decided to learn everything we could about hot air balloons.

We made this lapbook  from  and added a few of our own ideas.

Our library had a few children’s books about hot air balloons.  These two were our favorites.

We thought this video from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta was fascinating!
