The Red Balloon

Learn and practice Spanish, including vocabulary for colors and vehicles with the Oh Noah! “The Red Balloon" webisode, related games, and lesson plan. In the webisode, Coco wants a red balloon (“un globo rojo”) from a balloon vendor, but Noah doesn’t understand and buys so many balloons in different colors that they lift Coco into the stratosphere — sending Noah and Pequeño scrambling to rescue her. Students can learn, build upon, and apply the Spanish vocabulary through playing the interactive games.

The Red Balloon Interactive Video

In this interactive video, watch "The Red Balloon" webisode with embedded games to introduce and reinforce vocabulary learning. At two points in each webisode, the video will pause and invite players to take a "Match It" challenge in which they can learn a set of vocabulary words, then play a Concentration-style matching game involving those words. Players can choose to take the challenge, or return to the video without playing. After players complete each "Match It" challenge, the animated story continues. At the end of the webisode, a menu screen appears that allows kids to choose from the two "Match It" challenges they’ve already encountered, plus two new games – "Word Race" and "You Catch It, You Keep It" – which reinforce the same vocabulary words explored in the "Match It" games.
