Reply To: Module 3 – Stars, Space and Aliens

    I’d start by reading a story about stars, such as “How to Catch a Star” by Oliver Jeffers. Encourage the kids to ask questions and make observations about the stars in the story.
    Star Sorting Activity: Provide star stickers or cut-outs of different colours and sizes. Have them sort the stars by size, colour, or shape. Discuss the similarities and differences between the stars they have sorted.
    Star Art Activity: Each child would get a piece of black construction paper and yellow paint. Dip their fingers in the paint and make finger print stars on the paper. The children would be encouraged to get creative with their art and create different patterns with the stars.
    Star Gazing: I would take the children outside or to a window and look up at the sky. Point out any visible stars and constellations. Discuss how stars twinkle and how they light up the night.  Recap the lesson by asking the children to share one thing they learned about stars and conclude with the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
