Mapping the Stars

Goal: Create a presentation about a specific constellation and draw a map a model of the constellation.

 How To: Assign students each a specific constellation. The student will draw a model of the constellation, and take a photo of it to put in their presentation. They can then create a presentation about the appearance and location of this constellation throughout the year.

BONUS: Have students research Greek myths and stories about their constellation. Students can insert a video recording in their Buncee to retell the tale.

Next Generation Science Standards: 5-ESS1-2. Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
