What Makes Hot Air Balloons Rise?

Thursday, March 24, 2011
On thursday, March 24th, the Stingray reading group from Miss Bennett's 1st grade class presented their reports on hot air balloons to classmates and family members. The four students in this group, Trey Hill, Carsen Knutson, Landon Stadheim and Lucy Stay, had read a book about hot air balloons in their reading group. They then broke into two teams and each team wrote a report telling what they learned about hot air balloons, both in history and now. They also developed questions to ask the class about hot air balloons. After presenting their reports, the students used a small experimental hot air balloon to show the class how hot air makes the balloon rise.
