Product Description
Overview:
Hands-on mid-level science activity allowing students to create models of 16 popular constellations using cans or tubes made out of film canisters or toilet paper rolls with tin foil.

Stencils of the 16 constellations are provided and ready-to-use, with dots representing the location of the stars within the constellation.

The students will tape a stencil over the closed end of the can and use a push pin to poke holes in the tube where the dots are located. When the student looks through the other end of the tube light will enter through the holes giving them a visual of what the constellation looks like from earth.

When completed it makes for a great study tool for memorizing constellations.
