LEARNING to make a difference

Torch light constellations

The stars in the night star link together to make pictures that we call constellations. 

Using a dark coloured piece of paper carefully cut out star shapes, you could make stars all over the paper or try to make them look like one of the constellation patterns below.

Cutting tiny star shapes will be tricky, so you can just make small holes in your paper by carefully pushing your pencil through it, put something soft behind it so you don't hurt yourself.

Next attach your piece of paper to the end of your torch.

Turn out the lights and shine your torch towards the ceiling. What do you see?

Try making stars in different constellations.
