Let creativity soar by building a hot-air balloon replica.
Place an empty paper cup in a bowl of water. Why does the cup float? Experiment to see if the cup will float top-side down or when filled with water. Investigate the scientific concept of buoyancy using electronic and text resources.
Students research to discover how hot-air balloons float. Use resources to find out how hot-air balloons maneuver through air streams in the atmosphere.
