Constellation Play Dough

During our week of “stars”, we learned all about constellations.

We made them with a variety of materials, we played gross motor games aimed at teaching the major constellations (such as Orion and Andromeda), and finally, we used play dough!

For this activity, students added confetti stars to black play dough.

They then used plastic knives to cut their dough into a variety of shapes.

Following this, they named their constellation.

Finally, students compared their names (most of which were silly) to their friends!
