Constellations (Ages 9-10): Identifying/Finding Them, Deep Space Objects, and 3D

Mr. David
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(464)
Learn more constellations, think about them in 3D space, study the space objects in them, look for them in the night sky, and even invent your own as you talk and laugh with your teacher and classmates in this fun 5-week class.

Class experience

Students will identify by name several Northern Hemisphere constellations they did not previously know. They will learn that the stars in constellations vary in distance from us and vary in color and size, and that many deep space objects can appear in them. They will also learn why stars seem to move in the sky the way they do, why the North Star is where it is, why different constellations are visible at different times of the year, and how to find them in the night sky. Plus, they will learn how to interpret symbols on detailed constellation maps. In addition, they will realize that what star patterns look like is up to the individual person, and they each will use their imagination and creativity to invent at least one constellation plus be invited to create at least one accompanying story.
For decades, I have enthusiastically taught elementary school-aged children about space, whether as a science teacher at school or in summer programs. Collaboration with NASA and university scientists has helped refine my expertise.

I inspire students with a combination of storytelling, inquiry, discovery, discussion, and an age-appropriate, memorable sense of humor. Establishing a low-risk atmosphere and a comfortable rapport, I enjoy connecting with each individual learner, valuing the unique interests, strengths, and eager curiosity the students bring to class.
It is optional during the first 2 to 3 classes to have a clipboard with a few sheets of paper (blank or lined) and a pencil and eraser. A pencil/eraser will be needed once we are ready to invent constellations, plus colored pencils or crayons would be helpful.
