HUBER HEIGHTS — On the first day of SOAR for second and third grade students at Valley Forge Elementary, balloons were incorporated into a theme on flight theme. All of our activities throughout the day involved learning across the disciplines with balloons.

Students ended the day with guest speaker Ms. Lea Craine from Children’s Entertainment, who taught students how art and science relate to balloon sculpting. In her workshop she incorporated balloon origins, spatial reasoning, measuring, multi-step directions, friction, transfer of energy, pressure, temperature, and cause-effect. Each student learned to make three balloon sculptures of their own to take home.
