Research the stories behind the constellations in the night sky and then connect the stars to see them for yourself!
Constellations are groups of stars in the sky that form pictures. Many of these pictures are based on mythology of ancient cultures. Ask students what constellations they know. Can they find any constellations in the night sky?
There are 88 officially recognized constellations. Research these with your class to find examples. What stories are associated with the constellations you find? What stars form each constellation? Share your results with the class.
Now see if students can recognize the stars that form each constellation. Project a large image of the night sky onto the class whiteboard. Using Crayola Dry-Erase Markers or Dry-Erase Crayons, connect the stars to form a constellation! Ask students if they can find the North Star and the Little Dipper.
Students take turns finding constellations. Can they find all 88 constellations?
