"My boss is cooler than yours! My 6th grade math students are learning about volume and calculated how many balloons it would take to fill the principal's office. Then they spent days blowing up balloons and planning this prank.
Using the dimensions of the office, students calculated how many balloons it would take to fill the office. I built a 1 cubic foot box out of rulers and saran wrap so students could understand the idea of one cubic foot. With this, we determined that the box would hold 31 small balloons. Then we used this to determine that 71,000 small balloons would be needed. Students were eager to bring balloons and make it happen!"
