Sixth grade students at Meadow Brook Elementary worked hard to build hot air balloons. They were only given 24 pieces of tissue paper, a glue stick, scissors, ruler, pencil, and a notebook to make the balloons with. They were also told that some ideas may not work, but that is how you learn the most.
First, the students formed groups. Our group came up with Sailing Sea theme for our hot air balloon. It was shaped like an upside down water bottle. Each group had to pass off their team’s design to their teacher.
