SUMMER SKY

There’s nothing like looking up at the sky on a warm summer night.  It’s so much fun to stare at the stars looking for Orion’s Belt, the Big Dipper, the Little Dipper or the Great Bear.  The constellations are nature’s artwork.



You can create a beautiful inside sky with this 3-D space ball craft.  Have each student decorate the pattern.  Then flip the paper over and color a design on the back, too. 


Show your students how to cut a circle using short scissor cuts and turning the paper as they cut.    After they have folded the circle into fourths, remind them to carefully cut each arc without cutting through the opposite folded side.


Punch a hole in each space ball.  Tie thread through each hole and hang them from the ceiling.


Enjoy the final days of summer!
