This post is archived, but I wanted it on my new blog. It's a great preschool/kindergarten unit.
This first idea is very simple....I used an ellison cutter (our public library has one) and did star cuts outs. Then we thought of words that ended in "ar" like star does.
Next, we used glow in the dark star stickers to form the constellations for The Big Dipper and Hydra the Sea Serpent (which I knew nothing about prior to this project! However, apparently it's the constellation right below The Big Dipper.)
We also counted how many points a star has (5) and also how many sides it has (10). So, we put 5 stickers on each point to help remember that.
