This unit has been used in the classroom with much success. My students are asking for more. They learned from the questions and discussion that it lead to.
The unit includes the following:
* suggested lesson plans (about 15 minutes) that include a quick introduction to stars and constellations with an anchor chart (printable)
- 5 stories about the constellations with open ended questions to lead to classroom discussions. Stories are designed for elementary age students. Constellation stories include The Big Dipper, Orion's Belt, Taurus, Pisces, and The Bear, Ursa Major.
