Lisa Greenhut
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(409)
Explore the connections between Greek mythology and astronomy! Each week we will spotlight a constellation and explore the Greek myth behind it, then create our own constellation art!

Class experience

Students will explore the constellations in the context of Ancient Greek myths.
Students will observe features of stars, including position in the sky, apparent brightness, size, and color.
I teach astronomy at the American Museum of Natural History and look forward to sharing my love of the solar system with you!
Supplies for the constellation project:
-Week 1 - Blank star map printout - provided by instructor
-Weeks 2-6: Provided printout for each constellation - distributed weekly by the instructor
-Pencil and eraser
-Preferred coloring supplies
-Optional: Stickers, highlighters, or other art tools
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Greek and Roman myths contain references to sexuality, violence, and mortality. These references will be addressed in passing in a developmentally appropriate and sensitive manner.
We will be drawing from sources such as Homer's Iliad, D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths, and the book Star Stories. All stories will be retold in the instructor's original words using public domain images. We will be utilizing the program Stellarium to visualize the night sky.
