Teaching Through Trade Books: Seeing Stars

by: Christine Anne Royce

The winter months are a great time to make observations of several familiar constellations. While there’s no scientific reason to “know” the constellations—they are simply imaginative pictures imposed on stars—studying constellations can help students connect with culture in a fun way and develop the awareness that stars are different in apparent brightness and color. And, exploring the night sky over a period of weeks can also help students notice the motion of the Sun, Moon, and planets.
