The Twenty-One Balloons

This book was the first title read during Conversations in 20th Century Literature. Seven to twelve year olds read the book, discussed it and prepared projects in which they researched a country, prepared a hot air balloon that looked like their country of choice. Below is a video of the children presenting their projects at our Literature Club meeting.

For several of the children this was their first time to present a project in public. I believe they did a marvelous job with their creations and presentations to us. If you have trouble hearing everything they are saying, consider the video camera is a home version with less than adequate sound pick up and the fact that these precious children are just beginning their public speaking careers.
