While you are outside making your moon observations; look at the stars. Write and draw about what you see. Make predictions about what you will see tomorrow. Continue to record your observations in your journal for three nights.
Look at the shapes the stars form, ‘connect the dots’ to view some constellations. Try to find the Big Dipper. Use a telescope to get an extra close view of the stars. What shapes do you see in the stars?
Now create a star maker. Draw a constellation on the bottom of your cylinder container. Then with an adult’s help, use a pin to poke holes where the stars are. In a dark space, take your flashlight and shine it there the container. Aim it at the ceiling or a blank wall. Your constellation will shine through.
