Twinkle Twinkle Little Star… how I wonder what you are..
An early preschool song that many of my students had learned when they were itty bitties..
Now they no longer needed to wonder! With our week of studying the Constellations, students were able to identify Orion’s Belt, the Great Bear, Leo the Lion, The Big Dipper and many other stars.
And lets not forget the most important: The Pole Star – Dhruva’s star. Also known as Polaris, North Star, Bethlehem’s Star. All the other stars, and indeed the entire solar system according to the Srimad Bhagavatam, rotates around this one bright star.
We pricked black construction paper with pushpins and created our own night sky, by taping the ‘star pictures’ up onto the bright window. Check out our project!
