Product Description
This is an activity in conjunction with the STAR CHART OF THE NORTHERN SKY, available for purchase by Michael F. Ryan. Students are taught that the ancient Greeks decided to imagine that the constellation of Ursa Major was a giant bear in the sky. What is curious is that two different tribes of American Indians looked up at this star group and saw a bear in the sky. The activity speculates on how it is possible that two different cultures came up with the same creature in this star group. Students learn that something strange happens in the fall when the big bear appears low in the northwest horizon in the early evening.
