Students and parents made balloon rockets during an open house Sept. 20.

In half-day preschool, the students discussed the meaning behind a hypothesis. The class created balloon rockets and made a hypothesis on what would make the rocket go the farthest distance. Students then tested the hypothesis while observing what happened.

During an open house on Sept. 20, the families came in and made their own balloon rockets. The families were able to use different shapes and sizes of balloons and add different items to change the weight of the balloons. The families then tried to get their rocket clear across the room! It was a wonderful activity that the parents and kids really got involved in!
