Day 73: Your Name in Stars! December 5, 2006

Orion appears low in the eastern night sky during the evening in December.  After discussing the legend behind the story of Orion, students began creating their own constellation with the Your Name in Stars Constellation Project.

After filling their own name in the grid, students connected many of the ‘stars’ into a constellation.  Remember though that this is only half of the grade.  The other half of the grade will come from the 3-paragraph story that is written to explain the legend behind the constellation.  The entire project (constellation and story) is due in class on Friday.  Also due this week: your current event article write-up is due tomorrow (Wednesday): see the Day 67 discussion.
