Why Lesson Planet?
Young learners love creative movement. Here is a lesson plan that allows them to imitate balloons floating away by doing a "Balloon Dance." They start on the ground as if they are flat balloons with no air in them. The music starts, and they begin to inflate. A breeze comes up and kids begin to "float away." When the music begins to fade away, they float back down to Earth. This cute idea is based on the Arthur epidsode: "Arthur's Lost Dog."
