Hardin Northern 3rd Grade finished their Balloons Over Broadway unit with a Thanksgiving parade today, in collaboration with Mrs. Cano and her high school art class! The classes read the book “Balloons Over Broadway” by Melissa Sweet, which is all about the history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The favorite holiday parade in New York City dates back to 1924. The now giant helium-filled balloons that thrill audiences today originally were non-helium balloons mounted on sticks. The students made colorful balloons of their own for today’s parade — they also created floats to mount their balloons too. They created anything from favorite sports teams, to tv shows, to zoos, to Christmas themes!
