    Lesson based on Stars:
    • Start the lesson by eliciting from the children what they know about stars. Record this on a KWL Chart.
    • Read the Story: “How to Catch a Star” by Oliver Jeffers
    • Pick one of the activity sheets based on the story: Spot the Difference, Join the dots, make a mobile, maze sheets, colouring sheets.
    • Create their own constellations: Show the children simple examples of constellation on cards and on the Interactive Whiteboard. Discuss that constellations are patterns of stars in the sky and go through some of the names they have. The children could use some star stickers and some paper/card. Using silver or white crayons and markers, help the children connect some of the star stickers on their paper to create their own constellations patterns. They can copy the constellation cards or create their own patterns.
    • Video based on stars:
    • Going back to the KWL chart and elicit from the children what they have learned from the lesson.
