Constellation Tubes

In this activity, learners will create their very own constellation. Constellation tubes allow learners to see what their unique constellation would look like if there were looking through a telescope. While learners are creating your constellation, they can also explore more about constellations and the stories on how they became constellations. Activity includes extensions and a how-to video.
