This teaching resource includes:

  • We Soar to Great Heights (letter set)
  • 4 hot air balloon templates (space for student photos)
  • clouds (for decoration).

Use rope or string to create the connection between the balloon and the basket of the hot air balloon. To personalize the back-to-school bulletin board or door display for your new students, snap photos of each student on the first day of school, and place your students’ photos as if they are sitting in the hot air balloon basket. When they arrive for school the next morning, they’ll be delighted to spot their own robot!

Print on cardstock for added durability and longevity. After the back-to-school season is over, you can place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access and re-use next school year.
