Today we met a lovely Man called David who used to be a Science Teacher. David showed us lots of fun things we can do with a balloons and we also learnt quite a few scientific facts.
We used a the air from a balloon to power some propellers, we also used the air to make a balloon move along some string. We listened to the noise that was made as the air came out of the balloon.
We looked at and discussed what happens when a balloon is rubbed on our hair.
Then we also blew two balloons up that had polystyrene balls inside them, we used a pump to blow one up and we used our mouths for the other one. The results were very different!
This was a great way for us to learn more about balloons, in conjunction with our European project – Erasmus.
