Students will learn about how hot air balloons work, purchase materials from a hot air balloon store, and build their own hot air balloon to test with a hair dryer. Included in the Zip Folder is an editable Word document with a Google Slide presentation link, a PDF, and an editable PowerPoint presentation. The Google Slide presentation link guides students through a hot air balloon challenge, and the student packet the guides through the engineering process (Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve).
*This activity is my second graders' favorite, and they are asking to try it again and again!*
