Description:

Learners use simple materials to construct a model the Big Dipper. Learners hang the model from a doorway or ceiling and look up at it to see the constellation as seen from Earth. They can also look at it from the side to see what the constellation would look like from space. This activity will familiarize learners with the stars that make up the Big Dipper and how far the stars are from Earth (in light years).
