STAR SKETCHES - LEVEL 1

Long before the time of television, people told stories about the "pictures" they saw in the night sky. Many star groups were named for the people, animals, and objects our ancestors imagined when they looked at the stars. Use your imagination and other materials of your choice (crayons, stickers, glitter, etc.) to add to the star groups below. Create your own pictures using the stars as your guide.
