Constellations in Focus for Bolles PVB Science Students

As part of a recent lesson on constellations visible in the winter sky, Bolles Lower School Ponte Vedra Beach Campus science teacher Carolyn Houston helped students project their favorite star arrangement on the wall. Using hollow cardboard tubes as kaleidoscope-like resources, students selected a constellation and made holes at the covered end that depicted their constellation. Then they used a flashlight to project the images onto the lab wall. Students have been tasked with looking for these constellations in the night sky as a way to apply what they have been learning in the classroom.

Does your school do something similar?
