Balloon Racers
In this activity, each of you will be designing and building your own balloon car racer! You will have multiple days to work on this assignment and make sure that your balloon racer is the best it can be! Click on the link below for all of the rules and directions, and also helpful hints! Materials will be available for you in the classroom, but you may also bring in your own materials from home if you so choose. You must sketch out your balloon racer in your science journal and write a one paragraph rationale as to why you chose to design in that specific way! Build your balloon racer! Good luck!
