Product Description
Here is an activity set for students to become familiarized with the locations of stars and planets with SkyMaps. It is only $1.50 for 9 separate months, because they are old sky maps from previous years. New skymaps will have different locations and new information on them. This is only for an IDEA of how a person might set this homework up.

When teaching Astronomy, I always give the students a copy of the current SkyMap, which is FREE for educational purposes at (http://www.skymaps.com/downloads.html). (Scroll down 1/3 of the page and select Northern Hemisphere, if you are living in the United States.) I then go through the SkyMap looking for questions that I can make. Sometimes, it is for trivia involving the constellations. Sometimes I will ask about what stars make up what constellations. Other times I will ask them to dive deep into the text that is found on the back. This is a great activity and I highly recommend that you use this as a template to get you started.

I will warn you again, please make sure that you check for differences in these old sky maps vs. new current ones.

These were very popular with my students, and I will bet that your students will enjoy them as well.
