Using the information from the website, www.enchantedlearning.com, we researched and wrote short summaries about many of the different constellations in the sky. Once the writing was complete, students were able to make the constellation using white chalk on black construction paper and with mini-marshmallows to represent the stars. This is an old activity, but we gave it a new spin by adding a great book, The Zoo in the Sky, by Jacqueline Mitton! This book is absolutely gorgeous! Click on the cover image for the Amazon link!
We added some gorgeous pictures using glitter glue and colored chalks of the different constellations based on the illustrations in the book! The kids had such a great time creating these! They turned out fabulous!
