Welch Elementary students discovered a heightened learning experience in the school’s gymnasium.
RE/MAX Metro Chicago Real Estate brought their famous hot air balloon to the school to teach kids about the art of ballooning.
The first through fifth graders learned about various aspects of hot air ballooning and even got to see it in action as the 75-foot-tall balloon was inflated with cold air in the school’s gym allowing the kids to walk inside and take a look around.
When asked about the experience, the kids responded with excitement.
“It was like being in a giant marshmallow balloon!” said Danielle, a Welch Elementary School student.
The visit was concluded when the 420 students were taken outside to watch the basket and burners at work.
