"Helium Balloons" Trailer

Students discover how to make neutrally buoyant helium balloons maneuver through suspended hula-hoops and they will see what keeps airplanes up in the air. This relates to density, mass, volume, adhesion, and lift. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “Jack and Jill on the Slug Planet,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Easy
