Constellations are Seasonal

Unit 6: Earth's Place In Space
Lesson 3 of 9

Objective: SWBAT describe why we see some constellations all year round while others we can only see at certain times of the year.

Big Idea: Students will work in groups to create an image of an assigned constellation. We will then use these images in our model as we investigate why we only see some constellations at certain times of the year.
