Special Days Archive

A friend asked if I could put the links for a year’s worth of Special Days in one post so she wouldn’t have to search each time she worked ahead on her lesson plans.  That’s a good idea! So …

These are the direct links to the most recent Special Days and Resource lists for each month.  (Note – The 26th of each month is usually when the updates are finished for the next month.)

Hot Air Balloons

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.

Fantastic Resource and Activity List!                                                  https://www.franw.com/2014/06/hot-air-balloons.html

We made this lapbook  from

http://www.homeschoolshare.com/hot_air.php

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.

Here is a link to a cute craft idea we tried, of course we had to use batman action figures in the basket instead of the child picture  http://www.dltk-holidays.com/summer/mballoon.html

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