This week, we read the story The Big Dipper. We learned what the Big Dipper and Little Dipper constellations looked like. We also saw pictures of Gemini, Leo, and Orion. Next week, on one of the days we don't have school, please take a few minutes to go outside and look at the stars. Help your child to find the Big Dipper and Little Dipper. See if you can find the North Star, too! If you have a smartphone there are some great apps that you can use to find constellations in the sky. Try Sky Map for android phones -- and it's free!
