Up Up and Away!

Hello Everyone!
I just wanted to quickly share a little video of our Mini Hot Air Balloon launch.  It is only a couple seconds long, but you have to watch and listen to the kids!  
We were busy all week learning about wind, how wind is made, and it's association to how hot air balloons work.  The explanation, directions, and examples are in my unit from last week, Wind, Clouds, and Air.  On Friday we got all our little firsties (about 100!) together in the science lab and were able to help them understand the concept first hand.  In the video you will see a toaster (heat source), cardboard around the toaster, and a thin plastic bag (balloon) over the cardboard.  Turn on the toaster and ...voila!!  Luckily, my sweet teamie grabbed her ipad and took the video!! Thanks, H!!

I love the excitement!!
Well, that's it for tonight!! Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you enjoyed the view!!
Monday, here we come!!
