June 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
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!
