Preview: 5th grade Paper Mache

5th graders worked in partners to paper mache a balloon.  This proved to be tricky as sometimes the balloon ran away from them!  But they are smart and worked to put paper mache in key places to balance the balloon.  They created layers for 45 minutes so next week, we can cut them in half and they will be strong enough to use as a base for our masks.


Check back to find out what these messy, paper mache balloons will turn into!
