2 New Macy's Parade balloons


As the Macy's Parade returns to public viewing, here are two balloons that Macy's artists have added. Can you figure out their dimensions? Macy's give their dimensions in bicycle lengths, taxi widths, and stories tall.  Students use proportional reasoning in this short, but happy, activity.

For Adventurer members we've included the activity as a PowerPoint presentation, an editable Word docx, and solutions.
