Up, Up, and Away! Hot Air Balloon Resources

Up, Up and Away to a New School Year!  I'm creating a fun art project with the hot air balloon theme for my little firsties.  How cute will this theme be for a parents' night bulletin board!

We'll be reading a few hot air balloon stories to get us in the mood to" take flight" for this project.

Hot Air: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride (Caldecott Honor Book) This  Caldecott winning book delights young readers with the tale of a duck, sheep, and rooster who formed the flight crew in Montgolfiers 1783 test run of the first hot air balloon.  

Sally's Great Balloon Adventure Sally’s family visits a hot air balloon field.  She is tempted by the smell of fresh chicken coming from one of the balloons. Sally ends up in the balloon basket, and—whoops—the balloon takes flight!

Rainbow Balloon This book (a photo essay) shows children how hot air balloons work and teaches them basic concepts such as up and down, hot and cold.

Reading Rainbow has a lovely video of Hot Air Henry.


If you've explored hot air balloons in your classroom, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks and have a great week.
