I'm Seeing Stars! Science,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Can you guess the answer to this riddle? I'm a giant, bright ball of gas, 93 million miles away. My friends are only seen at night, but you see me in the day. If you guessed Earth's favorite star - the sun, you are correct. But what exactly is the difference between suns and stars? And what are constellations and some of the stories behind them? In this program, each aspiring young astronomer will discover the answer to these questions and craft their very own Constellation Projector to take home and share with their families. Recommended for grades 2-5. Class enrollment not to exceed 20 students.
