First Grade Balloon Parade

First Grade Balloon Parade

 

Rainwater first graders celebrated the beginning of Thanksgiving break with a balloon parade. The students began the week with a book study of Balloons over Broadway : the true story of the puppeteer of Macy's Parade by Melissa Sweet. Students then selected a character and crafted a balloon, following the engineering design process. The first graders marched through the school halls Friday afternoon, displaying their balloon projects, and wrapping up a fun week.
