Brainstorming: Stars

Monday, September 30, 2013

We have been studying space during our science time for a few weeks, and this week we focused on stars.  To get an idea of their prior knowledge, we started with a brainstorming session, and I was super impressed by the ideas they came up with.  Here is our web:
After brainstorming, we talked about several constellations and the names of the big stars in them.  I also showed them some pictures of different stars built to scale.  I can’t remember where my pictures originally came from, but they look very similar to these pictures, which I found here.
