This week we discussed stars and constellations. We talked about the life and death of stars, including our own, and how our sky view will change over the next thousands and millions of years. We discussed how connecting stars to make pictures helps people find certain stars in the sky. Also, how the constellations were used to help with agriculture and navigation back in the day. We also all drew our own constellations out of the stars that make up Orion and Ursa Major. Finally we watched as a projector shined moving stars on the ceiling. A special shout-out to Annette for providing me with a constellations shirt to wear for the day!
Have a great weekend, Olga
