To celebrate being done with astronomy we’ve been doing some fun astronomy-related activities. I found some chocolate rock candy at our local science museum and we used these to make constellations.
You just need a small handful of rocks, or asteroids as we called them, hold your hand above your paper and let go! We used chalk to draw lines between our asteroids to make constellations.
Blurry photo but nice smile!
Some of our creations…
I originally saw this idea here at Spell Outloud, they used M&Ms to make their constellations. More astronomy activities on the way!
