Activity: Hot Air Balloon
Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: This activity provides students with a visual for adding and subtracting integers and helps students understand that subtraction can be thought of as adding the opposite. A hot air balloon begins with a certain number of helium bags (providing lift) and the same number of sand bags (providing weight). The vertical position of the hot air balloon is determined by adding or removing a number of helium bags (representing positive integers) and sand bags (representing negative integers).
