  • StandardsNEW

My goal at Little Sci-Fi Labs is to create engaging, hands-on science lessons inspired by children’s literature. This lesson plan and included activities were inspired by Janell Cannon’s sweet classic, Stellaluna . Students will visualize the pattern of night and day and will discover why we can only see the stars at night.

This product includes:

  • A detailed teacher lesson plan with materials, steps, discussion questions, and an alignment to the national science standards (NGSS)
  • Printable, constellation cards
  • Printable, blank constellation cards for students to make up their own constellations
  • Student handouts on making predictions, observations, and drawing conclusions, and making comparisons (Venn Diagram)
  • Answer keys for all handouts

These activities and lesson are aligned to the NGSS Performance Expectation: 1-ESS1-1. Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.

NGSS1-ESS1-1
Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted. Examples of patterns could include that the sun and moon appear to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; and stars other than our sun are visible at night but not during the day. Assessment of star patterns is limited to stars being seen at night and not during the day.
