Third class experiment with helium

Third class experiment with helium

In Mr. Maguire’s class, The children have been learning about different gases and how they work. Last week they got to experiment with Helium. Helium is less dense than other gases in our air, so it rises up into the sky. The children got to see how this works. They blew up balloons with a helium tank and then attached them to pencils. Their mission was to lift the pencils into the air using the Helium. Most of the children estimated it would take a two or three  balloons to lift the pencils but it took around 7 balloons for some pencils to fly up. It was great fun and the children learned loads.
