The Story of MY Constellation

A few weeks back, my students worked on a project entitled "The Story of MY Constellation".  I tweaked a lesson plan that my wife (1st grade teacher) planned to use in her class that went along with slavery and the Drinking Gourd.  We researched constellations and read myths and legends (condensed versions) that went along with them.  Following the research, each student created their own constellation and legend to go along with it.  It was a nice cross-curricular lesson and can be adapted to all ages.  I put the complete lesson plan (with student worksheet) on Teachers Pay Teachers (click the link in the right side bar to go to my products).  Here are some examples of how they turned out:
