Do you ever dream of flying — making lazy circles in the sky like a seagull or a hawk? If you do, you’re not alone. With this lesson students take the first steps in a truly fantastic journey. Hot air balloons send students soaring over landscapes, historyscapes, and imaginaryscapes all while discovering scientific principles through exploration. They learn what happened when a sheep, a duck and a rooster hopped into a balloon, discover the origins of some rather strange traditions, explore what makes something go up and what brings it back down, learn about the loudest sound ever heard on Earth, follow a Professor around the Globe, and much much more. Come on! Let’s discover what’s out there in the Wild Blue Yonder!
