Transportation Day Fun at BSLK!

As part of our Transportation Unit, our school has a day of activities and different forms of transportation visit our school.  This was a great way to wrap up our unit. Luckily, the rain was gone just in time!

Caleb's mom decided to be brave today.  She went up in the bucket truck and over the top of the school!  The kids thought she was so cool!!

We were able to crawl inside the balloon part of a hot air balloon!  The balloon was actually lying on its side and the owner blew it half-way up so we could go inside and sit to listen to his expertise.  His name is Jeff Maddox from Huntsville. He has been visiting our school for the past 5 years.  He told us his 15 year old daughter has her own hot air balloon!

      We made a tissue paper covered hot air balloon too!

We're Going on a Treasure Hunt!

As we studied MAP Skills this week, I decided to add a little fun! I divided the children up into 5 teams and created a Treasure Hunt.  Each team had a map of the playground but each had a different route to take in order to find their treasure. They were so excited and loved watching each other search for their treasures.
