few months I print out a star chart for each child in the class and have them
explore the night sky with their parents. This really gets some great conversation
and questions happening about astronomy and the universe we live in.
Task - Choose a single point of light in the night sky that you don't know about
and that you'd like to tell your grandchildren that one of your early teachers
made you research. Identify the object on the sky map, research what it really
is and tell our class about it in a language that they will understand.
Hint - Work out why East and West are on the wrong sides & explain it. This
will save you a fair bit of time :)
