Hi Lorraine,

I like how you have structured this with a clear “starter question” of ‘how can we get the balloon to go straight with this equipment.’ That makes a very clear task for the children to use their design and make skills and learn about forces at the same time.

This can also allow for a natural discussion of fair testing as different groups decide if they can compare their set up to that of another group. Lots of opportunity for the children to describe and share their learnings.
