This project was created for my Astronomy class. I use this after we finish our unit on Stars and Constellations.
To summarize, I have provided a list of 18 Constellations for the students to choose from. Included in the list are the circumpolar, winter, spring, summer and autumn constellations for the Northern Hemisphere.
The students will create a PowerPoint on their assigned constellation and also will come up with a created constellation of their choice. They will have to use a star map to show what their constellation looks like in the night sky. You can find a constellation map online, or use this link...
The students really have a lot of fun creating their poster and stories that go along with them!!! I put 90 minutes for 60 minutes in lab, and about 30 to present.
