Balloon Cars - Prep

As the Prep’s continue to study transport, this week’s activity was to design and construct a balloon powered car, with the help of their Year Four buddies. There was much discussion about how cars move and how to adapt their car to make it move. It was wonderful to see how engaged the Preps and the Year Fours were while listening to each other’s thoughts regarding design. With support and guidance from their buddies, the Preps hammered holes in plastic lids to make their car wheels. The Preps were very excited to be using real hammers and to be wearing safety goggles!

With much eager anticipation all students were excited to test dive and race their newly constructed vehicles. This activity was a perfect way to promote collaboration amongst both year levels and build resilience when things didn’t go to plan.
