Throwing Balloons

Our inquiry topic this term is Flight! Yesterday we looked at a balloon that had a small balloon inside of it filled with water. We predicted what might happen when we threw this balloon. Would it be like a normal balloon with just air in it?

We noticed that because the water inside is heavy, it was pushing the balloon in different directions. A balloon with just air in it would fall much more slowly because air is light.

"The balloon was twirling because the small balloon inside was going around in the big balloon"

"The balloon had a mind of its own, it wanted to go places"

"It wiggled on the ground"

"The balloon was falling like a magnet"
