Product Description
A fabulous way to integrate science and math! Students construct a constellation plot of the winter and summer skies through coordinate graphing. The region of the sky seen during the winter is a particularly excellent area to study as it is home to many easy-to-identify constellations and interesting stars. This constellation map includes Sirius (the brightest star), Rigel, Betelgeuse, the Pleiades, and more. The summer plot includes Hercules, Draco, Ursa Minor and more.

After students make their plots, they can use the provided answer key to connect the stars to form the correct constellations. This resource also provides information on the interesting stars and objects found in these areas of the sky, including their coordinate points so that students can locate them on their maps. Student could even take their plots home and use them as they learn some of the constellations and their stars.

The lines of the custom graph paper are softened so as to highlight the constellations.

The winter constellations are:
Orion, Taurus, The Pleiades, Gemini, Canis Minor, Canis Major, Eridanus

The summer constellations are:
Hercules, Cygnus, Draco, Aquila, Ursa Minor, Corona Borealis, Lyra, and Bootes
