Telescopes help us see beyond our world. Let your creativity shine with this stellar project!
When studying space, scientists use sophisticated tools such as a telescope. Discuss with students what they already know about space research and how telescopes help us to gain information about our universe. Post student contributions to the discussion on a classroom white board using Crayola® Dry Erase Markers.
Round Telescope Decorate two pieces of a 3 x 5" (7.62 x 12.7 cm) piece of Neon Color Explosion® paper. On each piece, fold the paper down ½" (1.27 cm) on one end to display the color on the back of the paper. Punch decorative holes in the paper with a craft punch(optional). If Color Explosion Paper is not available, students may use construction paper and Crayola Washable Markers.
Roll the papers into tubes. Make the one tube slightly larger in diameter than the other tube. Tape the tubes in place with clear adhesive tape.
Assemble the telescope by sliding one tube inside the other. Make sure the folded down pieces are on the ends of the telescope so the telescope slides freely.
Square Telescope: Decorate two 4.5 x 6.5" (11.43 x 16.51 cm) pieces AND two 4 x 6" (10.16 x 15.24 cm) pieces of Neon Color Explosion paper. On each piece, fold the paper down ½" (1.27 cm) on one end to display the color on the back of the paper. Punch decorative holes in the paper with a craft punch (optional).
Fold each piece of paper in half lengthwise. Create a box by taping the long sides of each size paper together. You will have two boxes, one slightly larger than the other.
Assemble the telescope by sliding one box inside the other. Make sure the folded down pieces are on the ends of the telescope so the telescope slides freely.
