A Journey into the Celestial Sphere (Age: 6 – 12).
This activity gives the opportunity of engaging and becoming familiar with the night sky, a part of the Natural World that has always fascinated and evoked human admiration. We’ll learn about the origins of celestial bodies, the solar system, what are the stars, the constellations, etc. while narrating the myths that named them. We’ll learn basic constellations and how they’re connected through Mythology. We’ll learn how the knowledge of the night-sky is used in orientation, and so on. Through the activity depicting the most well-known constellations, their basic shape and the number of their stars will be captured in children’s memory.
