We created hot air balloons to go along with our school theme, "Oh the Places You'll Go." The students were to think of their perfect hot air balloon then sketch it. When the kids were finished sketching, they traced over their lines with black glue (glue mixed with black paint). After the glue had dried, the students either painted them with water colors or colored them with markers and painted over the marker with water. The balloons turned out lovely and the conversations of where the students would like to travel were delightful...Saurra Olesen, 4th Grade.
