Today, the 6th grade class was challenged by Mrs. Flowers to get a toy car as close as possible to the specific distance. The toy cars were controlled by a balloon. The students had to blow up the balloon, then when they were directed to, they were to release the balloon to make the car move. The closer you got to the end point given, the better. The lesson for today was to help the students better understand what force was moving the balloon car and how much air was needed in the balloon to move the car far enough to reach the distance needed.
