Planes, Trains and Automobiles Theme ~ Friday

Today, we talked about boats being a form of transportation. Where they go and what they carry. We made our own paper boat and the link is at the bottom of the page.

He had to test it and it floated. So did the 2 crayons that he put on the sides.

Here is our finished hot air balloon. When he popped the balloon, the sides caved in a little, so I just took the end of a spatula and rounded it back out. Since this hot air balloon wouldn't lift off...

I gave him one that would. We said a little prayer that no bird or plane would be harmed during this experiment.


And Away!
How to Make a Boat 

I am going to have to do another week of Planes, Trains and Automobiles in the future. He never covered rockets, trains, buses, bikes, motorcycles, etc. We can design different boats or even study things that float or don't float. So many ideas ;-)
