CHS students make hot air balloons

By Calen McKinney

In Jessica Bradshaw's integrated science classes, Campbellsville High School students have studied how a hot air balloon works and were then asked to make their own. Students used tissue paper and glue to make their balloons. They began by tracing a pattern on the tissue paper and cutting it out. They then glued the paper together.

After the balloon was built, students added a ring at the bottom through which air would travel to see if the balloon would float.
