Astronomy activity for kids. This activity can be done inside or outside. Outside activities are highly encouraged when weather or time permits. When you look upward and see the stars above, you realize just how small and special the Earth really is. Have your kids learn about what they are seeing by connecting the dots to make well-recognized constellations such as Cancer and Leo, and asterisms, the Big and Little Dippers. Answer keys are included for kids for the connect-the-dots activity and as a template. Take the templates outside to place rocks for stars and use sidewalk chalk to trace the constellations. Learn and observe the relative spacing between the stars. Eight constellations and asterisms total in this packet. Learn all about Earth Day with a FREE Earth Day history fact sheet. Get them involved with a FREE Earth Day Pledge Sheet where they can commit to reduce, reuse, and recycle to help do their part for Earth Day.
*Please note that this activity is ALREADY included in the Earth Day SUPER SALE discounted bundle for $10.00 for all activities.*

All my crafts and activities are purposefully designed to be fun, easy to accomplish without taking too much classroom time (most are 4-6 steps), and incorporate multiple fine motor skills to help the kids practice and improve the small muscles of the hand, hand and eye coordination, depth perception, and grip. As you will see in the pictures, my daughter demonstrates various steps for how your kids can do it, too.
